So I made this profile years ago and never really used it. I have had type 1 diabetes since the age of 14 but never really payed much attention to it because I wanted to be like a "normal" teenager. I have really neglected my health by partying hard like binge drinking all the time and smoking marijuana which gave me the huge munchies!! I am ready for a lifestyle change and wanted to become part of this community so I won't feel so alone fighting this battle since I know no one else with type 1 diabetes.

If we did a survey of the members to determine the number who neglected this diabetes at some point, I imagine the percentage who is is close to 50%. As a type 1 I also neglected my diabetes and like you I came to this site not for preaching, which you will not find, but support which you will find. Hang in there and we are so glad you found us.
