I'd like to attend. I'm a wildland fire paramedic and may get called out, so if I don't I will attend. I have been a type 1 diabetic for about 20 years, I didn't get it until I was 24 years old, and I sure do with I could understand more about why I ended up with it. Also, I wish I knew why I get so tired, and if any of my other strange symptoms are just a part of my diabetes that I have to learn to live with.

I hope to attend this presentation. I was diagnosed in 1945, when I was 6, and I have good diabetes health.
