Shoshana, we'd like to hear more about your experience with diabetes during WWII. Were you born in France? How did you get to the US? Please consider writing a Blog here, I know many of our members would like to hear your story.

Shoshana, are you talking about your own experience when you say "75 years since I was not yet 3"? Does that mean you have been type 1 for 75 years? Plese tell us more. I have been type 1 for 66 years and am looking forward to the 75 year Joslin medal.

Diagnosed age 21 in 1979. Now 53 and doing OK. Thyroid has given me problems. A1c has never been that good. But I watch what I eat, exercise and try to keep a good attitude.

Minimed pump over 10 years. Its a long road.
