Tell us more about you (optional)
Hi my name is Tony. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a few months after my Honorable Discharge from US Marine Corps. Diabetes for me at the beginning was sort of a big joke. However Diabetes through the years has gotten serious for me it cost me my marriage and so many chances for work with the FBI and Air Traffic Controller have been lost due to my diabetic condition. I also have had many hypoglycemic attacks (low blood sugar) and have had many automobile accidents and even had to retire from Uncle Sam on an early out due to my diabetic condition. I'm in general good health and with no complications other than the low blood sugar episodes. However I wish I was in the health that I was blessed with before my the Diabetes Type 1 when I was in the Marine Corps. I'm 5"6 about 149Lbs white with a light tan, dark brown hair and green eyes. I'm also the proud father of a 19 year old Princess who attends Maryland University.

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to jrtpup on her page.

Thanks my friends!

Hello! and welcome! I'm new to the group to and very excited about meeting other diabetics. I read something about the pump and not being interested? I've been on it for 4 years and its the best thing I have ever done for myself and my health! My A1c have not changed much but no more low blood sugars, unless I bolus wrong. I have had it for 36 years diagnosed at age 2. and the pump was the best thing I could have done. I use the animas ping. never an infection, just clean the area before injection and after with a bandaid. good luck! :)
