It's hard to believe that there is only 10 of us on here..
Any ways I was just wondering if we could have a roll call...
I am Sarah, 26, type one, just started pumping a little over a week ago. I have been diabetic for 14 years.. I am married and have two wonderful little girls. I live in a little town in north west Iowa..
The reason I love tudiabetes.. every one understands what I am talking about!!!!
I'm Lizmari, 33, type two. I was diagnosed November 17 of this yearm (2009). Diabetes, however, has been a long part of my family. My my dad, my grandfather, and 5 uncles have died from Diabetic complications. My brother and myself both have the disease, now. I am married to a wonderful man who also has Diabetes, and we have one cat (which is like our child). lol :) I live in Ames, Iowa... but I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I came to Iowa State University back in '94, and I've stuck around. :)
I just barely discovered tudiabetes, and it's really neat... I love being able to talk to people who care about taking care of themselves, and want to support each other.
I'm Melanie, 27, type one, diagnosed in March 2009. But, like Lizmari, diabetes is also a pretty part of my family--I have two cousins with type one and an uncle who died from complications of type one. I'm orginially from St. Louis, but I moved to Iowa last August, and now I live in North Liberty and work in Cedar Rapids.
I have a sister who is also type one. Out of five kids two of us are diabetic.. Weird I know.. We were both diagnosed between the ages 11 and 12 and we are 9 years apart. There is no other diabetics is our family. So we always wonder where it came from and where it's going.. I worry for my kids or my grandkids but by then we will have a CURE!!!
