I live outside of Philly in Montgomery County. I was diagnosed with Type 1 in February, so everything is new to me. Trying to get used to having to take insulin everyday.

I live in Ebensburg so I am not too far from Altoona. Can I ask “why” you would move here! I had to move back to this area when I got sick a couple years ago and I hate it here. I actually want to move to Pittsburgh. I go there enough to see doctors – if you want a good doctor, you won’t find one here! I went to the DC area when I got out of school and then lived outside of Harrisburg for awhile before moving back here.
