Hi all!
I'm new to this place although I'm not new to diabetes.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 at the age of 16 in 1994. I had a son in 1999 who was diagnosed in 2003 at the age of 4.
We both pump with an Animas Ping with Novolog insulin. My mom was diagnosed in 1984 with Type 1 as well.
In 2008 I had my daughter who is for now very healthy. Hopefully the diabetes thing skips her.
In 2009 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. So dealing with that and two type 1's in the house can be very stressful for my husband of almost 6 years.
Hope that is enough info for an introduction! Any questions just ask!
Stephanie

Hey Stephanie - welcome to the forum.

Your son surely had a great role model and source of support and information from you. Most T1 kids don't have a parent who can relate like you can!

Glad you joined us.

Hi Stephie, welcome! You are obviously a very busy lady. I hope you take time to take good care of yourself. I have read about moms with a diabetic child, and they spent so much time wit the child and sometimes ignored themselves.

I have been type 1 for 66 years, and am very healthy. You and your son can both have long, healthy lives if you have good control.
