Hi Rebecca!

I'm using Tudiabetes as a way to connect with fellow young adults with diabetes. I'm a University of South Florida student and president of our chapter of "Students with Diabetes." We're hosting a national conference June 1st - 3rd in Tampa and want to bring in as many Type I diabetics (18 - 30yrs) as possible from across the country.

The conference costs $55 dollars total, but we can't pay for your plane ticket (housing, food, & activities like Busch Gardens are, however, included in the price). Please let me know if you are interested in any of this and/or visit our website for more information!

Rebecca, I feel what you are going thru. My daughter uses symlin and says it works great for her. My self, being an old timer, will not change my ways. I've been doing this since 1958. My daughter was dx'd in 2006 and has grasped a handle on it very well. She is now 28yo.
Live life to the fullest!!!

Hey, no biggie! I have not been very active on here lately...haha. All is well with me, sorting out what the heck to do now that I have graduated from college. I would really love to help diabetics somehow...any ideas? ( I know I can't be a nurse because I get queasy at the sight of blood)...
