hi, Andrew, there are a lot of members here who look at their diabetes in a really positive way, because it kinda forces you to lead a healthier lifestyle. I am not one of these people. HA! I'm much happier with it ever since I found TuDiabetes, though. Here is a discussion that had a lot of replies about the subject.

Hey there,
I can totally get what you're saying, I reckon I am a survivor and a fighter and I have learned that you gotta push on through, I have had plenty of Cr*p to deal with, in fact still do, but perhaps the T1 has, in it's own twisted way, made me stronger and more patient and definitely more determined to get what I want in spite of it.
