Someday, I'll be going to med school. I have two more years of college to go. My picture was taken at a park in Seattle- I believe it is called Pratt Park.

Hey Devon! Thanks for the invite to the twins group! You 'stache is pretty rocking. The Peace Corps sounds so awesome. When I am done with all my schooling I'm hoping to do Doctors without Borders or something cool like that. I ran cross country too!

Hi, Devon! Welcome to the TuDiabetes family.

That is a VERY cool moustache you have going on, man. I wish I could grow it like that.

Awesome!! You beat me to the punch. Good on you! It is very cool to have twins. In fact, my identical self just joined tonight. I will direct her to your group too. Take it easy.

Welcome, I just joined myself. I am also an identical twin. My sis does not have diabetes either, but she did have gestational as well as myself. It's cool being a twin, huh?!

The Peace Corps accepts diabetics. there are, of course, places that they will not send me because of my medical condition. I am nominated to serve in Africa for community development in May, but I have not finished my medical check yet, so I may not make it in May.

The lady who interviewed me knew a type 1 diabetic who served in the Philippines, so people have pulled it off before. you should join.

hey, i've been thinking (and starting to apply for the peace corps also.......how do you plan to pull it off with the diabetes? you think they'll accept you?

The moustache is very real. I have been growing it since June 07. Moustache wax is what I use to get it to stick up, and to keep it out of my mouth when eating. welcome to the community.
