I am new to this forum and fairly new to Diabetes.
One year ago, today, I was formally diagnosed as Diabetic (after being rushed to the ER with a serious case of DKA).
I just found out I was Type 1 (well properly diagnosed) like six months ago (well, Type 1.5, LADA). Anyway, last year I thought my life was over. Now, I can't imagine my life not bolusing insulin, counting carbs, and checking my blood sugars.
The only problem I've had with my Diabetes (other than a near death experience, haha)is a sense of isolation. I want to meet other people with Diabetes, online and off, so that I can relate to someone else. No matter how much others emphasize it is nice to be able to talk about: hypos, highs, bolus, basal, tests, doctor's appointments, and etc.
So I hope to find that here, in addition to learning new information.
I lurked on this site for awhile and finally decided to join.
Glad to be included in the club nobody really wants to join. :0)
