A Simple Question and Quite the List!

It seemed like a simple question.

So last night, I was trying to put together some resources for a recently diagnosed adult person with diabetes (PWD).  I was trying to find some others who had been diagnosed as adults.  So I threw this out on Twitter:

The response I received is overwhelming!  I met some new people on Twitter I didn't even know!

So, if you're looking for people diagnosed with either Type 1 or LADA as an adult, here is the list of all who responded.  If you tweet or blog and you're not on this list, please let me know, and I'll add you.  Conversely, if you would like your name removed, that's not a problem either.

The girl I was collecting resources for is never going to believe it!  This is quite the list!

Thanks everyone!

  1. One of the hardest things about being diagnosed last year at 23 was that most of the resources are tailored for T1 kids/parents, T1's that were diagnosed as kids, and T2 adults, but nothing for T1's diagnosed as adults! I know I'm going to get a lot of use from this list. Feel free to add my blog to the list.


  2. OMG Jess, this is amazing!!!! I am the PWD that Jess was searching for information for. I am going to have re-activate my Twitter just because of this post.

    I had no idea there were so many of us out there!

  3. is it weird that i feel left out?
    (adult w/t1, diagnosed as a kid)

  4. You can add me to the list: @ShawnmarieS

  5. Me too! Diagnosed with type 1 at 29. @amberjclifford, ambercliffnotes.blogspot.com

  6. Being dx'd at 55 was not fun.
    Finding the DOC was a lifesaver.
    Making friends with the young(er) d-people kept me sane (well, that's debatable... the sane part...)
    Reading blogs of d-parents whose child was recently dx'd taught me lots.
    Meeting you in KC - so much fun!
    I love this list, Jess!

  7. wow! What a great list, i'm not LADA myself but I am slow onset, dxd 16! 19 now. Very odd! But I relate to LADA diabetics most so all is good :)
    I really need to update my blog!!!!

  8. I meet this criteria (but I've been a bit off the grid lately.....) I blog at silverlined-details.blogspot.com and my twitter is @jnuvola.

  9. Thanks so much for adding me to your list! This is a really great resource; I'll have to check these out.

  10. What a wonderful thing you're doing for your friend. And you can add me to the list. I was diagnosed at 23 with T1. :)
