"Hello Tony! Just stopping by to see how you are doing and seeing if you are still around these days. How is the music going? Life? You know all the good questions! Well, hope all is well and have a wonderful weekend!"
Hi, my name is Tony and I am 26 years old. I was diagnosed with having Type 1 diabetes on the 10th November1999.
I have recently finished my degree in Music Technology and Sound Recording. I am now spending a lot of time working and playing with my band Driftrun (please check out www.myspace.com/driftrunband), which I play the drums for and also have alot to do with the production/recording of our songs, as well as playing the piano/keyboards/synths on a lot of the recordings. I am also working on several compositions for media at the moment, which I hope will be used here in the UK in the future.
Until recently i have had excellent control over my diabetes, however, my body seems to have outgrown my usual routine so I am again in a learning curve trying to get my blood sugars back under control. ( I am getting there). I moved onto Mulitple injections recently and my control is improving. I take 2 injections of long lasting insulin (Humalin) when I wake up and before bed and inject quick acting insulin (Humalog) before eating carbs. So far so good!!!
I thought it was about time I joined a community for diabetics. I never seem to come across diabetics or people who understand my condition in my world? (apart from doctors and nurses) and I really need to talk to people who understand diabetes. I hope to learn a lot and meet some great people by joining this community!!
Please feel free to drop me a msg anytime

Holy cow, we are nearly brothers!!!!! I built a small studio in my basement and I have recorded several songs of our band "The 4 Heads". Everyone in the band has survived messy divorces and mental breakdowns but the band has survived each and every one and we are still like one mind. On my page is several tunes I recorded.
I have been type one since 1959 and saw my last endo in 1969. I have no complications, regularly get 5.5 A1Cs, test my blood twice a month, and feel totally relaxed and at peace.
I am also an ultradian bipolar which is why I am a composer, writer of poetry, and creative in many ways. I absolutely love being mentally ill ha ha!!!!
Ask anything you want, I am always here, and take care of yourself.
