Hey everyone! My name is Maya, I'm from Ohio. I'm a type 1 diabetic, and was diagnosed when I was 4 years old (I'm 24 now). I haven't always had a great handle on my blood sugars (had a period of the whole "why me?") But getting back on track! I was recently diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy too. :( looking forward to getting to know everyone better!

Hello Maya! Twenty years is a long time. There are others here who have been type 1 a long time. I was diagnosed in 1945 , when I was 6, and am very healthy. If you take good care of yourself then you can have a long, healthy life.
