Hey my name is Erin im 17 and i was diagnosed a year ago Friday at Childrens Hospital Boston. I'm still getting the hang of things but i think i've been doing a decent job. My A1C today was 5.9 today at my check up. I'm very active. I am a competitive swimmer and skiier. I live in a small town so I don't know many people my own age with diabetes so its definately comforting to know that i am not alone. It's quite isolating sometimes.
You're not alone Erin =) Welcome to the community! Nice job on your A1C. Ive always admired people who can ski... Im horrible at it...but love to swim!
WELCOME ERIN!!!!!!!!! Ur not alone here. I was 10 when I got the diagnoses and lived in a very small town also went to a school that had 500 ppl enrolled from k-12 (talk about small LOL) oh lol is laugh out loud) U might want to check out our groups here there is a group for teens with Type 1 here if u haven't already foud it.
