Brubraja commented on rick the "Blogabetic"'s blog post 'The worst kind of Diabetes?'
"I am sorry Rick for taking your blog out of context. I would like to point out though that you just said "The epidemic that is driving the research money is an epidemic of type 2. As a type 1 we are lucky to get any of it". That is exactly…"

Brubraja commented on rick the "Blogabetic"'s blog post 'The worst kind of Diabetes?'
"I am sorry, but I have to disagree. As T1's, we cannot live without insulin...period! We cannot get $4 pills from Walmart and go on and live a happy life. We do struggle more than 90% of T2's. Complications with T1 tend to come quicker and…"

"It's been so difficult trying to explain my diagnosis to my family, friends, and co-workers. Because I was diagnosed at 22 some people will just say oh well you didn't catch it until you were older others just decide I'm type 2.…"

"Get used to the well meaning but terribly misinformed advice. I was diagnosed with LADA over 10 years ago and I have heard everything about how to "cure my diabetes". LADA is not well known so people figure either you get type 1 when you…"

Brubraja replied to Dave Davis's discussion 'Friends who offer "cures" for Diabetes'
"Dave Davis, I completely understand where you are coming from. I even had a DOCTOR ask me "What makes you think that you are a Type 1 diabetic?" and the same doctor said "If you lost weight, you wouldn't need insulin and you…"

Buddy King replied to Brubraja's discussion 'How do you all do it?' in the group Type1 for 30 Plus Years
"Brubraja, I was six when I was diagnosed. Tomorrow I will be sixty-seven. I don't really ever remember not taking shots. Part of dealing with this successfully was that I was diagnosed just after recovering from polio in 1950. Because there was…"
