I am kind of shy but I have met other online diabetics across the country before. We are both hooked up with acidrock23, and he has suggested before about meeting up. I have been Type 1 for 44 years and have never belonged to a group.

Hi, Phyl, and welcome to TuDdiabetes. I am also a type 1.5, living in Roanoke, Virginia but from the suburban Chicago area. Born & raised in Elmwood Park, lived in Elgin, Carpentersville, and West Chicago. Sister-in-law lives in Batavia, so I know the area well.

If you go to my page, you can see my "info", which is not a bad idea here. I'm T1. I think there's at least 5 or 6 of us around here, just Naperville/ Bolingbrook/ DuPage county area but we don't have a group or events set up just yet.

I am always interested in getting together so if someone puts something together, I would like to hang out! Unfortunately, I am 1) lazy and 2) still fumbling around here so I haven't set it up...

I misdiagnosed as a Type 2 at 45 and then got super sick about 6 'months later. Inter nest thought I had Graves. Then I found yet another endo who put me on insulin but was sure I was a type 2 who had blown out my pancreas and never tested me for T1. I wasn't convinced because I knew how quickly this came on -- and finally found a great endo who not only tested me for T1 but also found two other autoimmune problems. I was 47 when that proper diagnosis finally happened. I'm 48 now so we are really similar in our duration with this disease. I see you are in Naperville. I live in Philly but have worked out of Lake County for the past few year -- most recently in Libertyville.
