I was 11 when I was diagnosed. So I've had it for almost 8 years now.

Do you guys ever wonder how long you actually had it before you were diagnosed though? Hmm...
I was also 4.
Sorry this is late. Seems the email was slow and suddenly got 2 and one half days of emails to get caught up. To Peetie, doing as well as can be expected. Blood sugars need some work to get them into place where they should be, need to lose weight as several years ago the medical system severely messed up and during the time I was in hospital lost 15 pounds and when they finally worked on what the actual problem was (bursitis and surgery) gained 35 pounds during the healing process, Net result of all that was now heavier than I would like to be and also (fallout of adventure) make myself sick(almost) every day when you try and make decisions Just try and accomplish something when that is a daily grind.
