I just found this website and it's absolutely amazing! I was recently diagnosed so all of this information is so helpful.

I changed Endos from a doctor at Virgina Mason (don't even remember his name, he came into the room once, really only saw the specialized RN), now I am at Dr. George Moore on Bothell/Everett from the Western Washington Medical Group.

I've seen him once so far and he seemed great, has a sense of humor and sounded like he knew what he was talking about/doing. Problem was, it felt rushed and I didn't feel like I got all my questions answered and I couldn't figure out if it was me or him. I haven't made a judgment call yet until I see him again once or twice.

Just wondering if anyone has seen him or sees him and what they think!

Anyway, it's great there is a group out here! I'm finding it hard to find other Type 1's my age around here, too. Dealing with diabetes in college is difficult! Especially as a newbie.

Hi Danielle,

I'm newly diagnosed as well (July 12th), and live in Eugene, OR. I am older than you (33), but it is still hard to find people who are adults diagnosed with Type 1. Seems like you get more education when you are diagnosed younger.

Hope you are doing ok! I'm still adjusting.

ps Cute pic! Is that an Omnipod on your arm?
