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...
WELCOME TO OUR REALLY BIG (WORLD WIDE) LOVING, CARING, & UNDERSTANDING FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
So you have heard of Giving Tuesday, right? Maybe you have seen the hashtag: #GivingTuesday. If you are like me, confused by all of the messages pointing in different directions floating around social media, you may be wondering, “What is Read on! →
Last Thursday was November 14, 2013, the day we commemorated the birthday of Frederick Banting. Thanks to him we have insulin today. Early that day the International Diabetes Federation released updated statistics for diabetes worldwide, as part of their update Read on! →
