Since I just talked with you on your muscle cramps thread, I'll be brief here in welcoming you . . . we're just glad you found us and thank you for joining us!

Tell us more about yourself, how you manage your diabetes, and what's this kite landboarding sport all about?!

take care & hurry back!

Hi Slide, and welcome.

Shanny's right - I was the ripe old age of 52 when I joined the T1 club. Quite a surprise, as no one in my family had/has diabetes. I'm 2 1/2 years into this jag and can report that my life hasn't changed (except those pesky finger stabs and injections!) and I still hike, canoe, go to dinner - all the things I did before dx. Just more careful (mostly) with food.

I hope you'll keep posting. It's always great to find others who share the day-to-day challenges!

Jen
