The Start Of A New Community Right Here On Http://www.TuDiabetes.Org (02-14-10)

Just to start, My real name is Ashley i am from a little town called Arlington located in the northern part of Washington State. I am 25 years old i have a Beautiful daughter which we named Isabella and a Beautiful Girl-Friend Nichole. I am a Type 1 Diabetic and have struggled with this disease sense i was 14 years old. Now hitting 25 i am starting to notice the importance of taking care of ones self with this illness. I have multiple other illness's that range from child hood birth defects in my lower back to having sleep apnea and hypothyroidism. So now turning 25 years old i am having to learn to live everyday with these illness's and take care of my self so i can live some what of a productive life. Life has become increasingly a struggle the past few years with the onset of these medical problems and me not taking care of them the way i am suppose to due to the fact of stress and other things including my job. I recently made the decision to quit my stressful job and focus on myself for awhile and my health. I am excited to be apart of this new community and hope to learn and add some friends to my life that seems some what abnormal with these problems i have going on. Also hope to learn and be able to ask some question that i have regarding the issues that arise. with all that said thank you for taking the time to read this.

Lots of Love and Care
- Ashley
