Smile Hi from Vale

I was born and then 4 days later I was diagnosed with neo natal T1 diabetes mellitus and that's over 40 years ago. Looking forward to being part of the community.

Hi, Vale. Interesting story, and SO glad they were able to diagnose you quickly! Is your mother also diabetic?

Welcome to the forum Vale. There are many other T1 here with great success stories. My hubby is T2 and has had wonderful success due to this forum and the wonderful people here. Welcome again, and jump right in all will be interested in hearing how you have managed your D.

Default Positive about Diabetes

Hi

That's good to hear, unfortunately all we hear in the UK is how bad it all is re diabetes. Have found the Australians and New Zealanders to be positive and helpful.

I do get fed up with all the neg stuff, there's such alot of postive stories about that just don't get heard/seen enough. Looking forward to hearing about them!

take care!

Hearing about the positives can make the struggle of doing the the right things a little easier to continue doing and worth the past efforts Just don't forget the negative things. They can become reality if high BG numbers are allowed to come back.

Having been diabetic for over 40 years, the stuff they used to put out (1970s) about what could happen was frankly terrifying for a young mum with a diabetic child.

The negatives are the stuff that keep me on the straight and narrow, which has enabled me to have a really positive life. I just wish that these positives (anyone's positives) were highlighted as much as the stuff that might happen.

I know a mum who was so terrified for her son's future but then she met a load of "older/experienced" diabetics and that helped her. If you're told all the negs all the time that what you're lead to believe.

Personnally I know how much time and effort I give to looking after me and having a full life too - for me it's all about compromise.

Thanks for post! Take care
