I was not diagnosed as an adult. I was 10, so I can’t really remember not having diabetes. Sometimes I like to chat with other PWDs diagnosed as children and take a walk down memory lane. Chew the fat about the good old days. I’ve also learned from some friends that being diagnosed as an adult is quite different from being diagnosed as a kid. We all have diabetes, and we all “get it,” but sometimes you want to connect with someone whose experience closely mirrors your own.
This list started as a resource for a friend, and grew into something I wanted to share! The response has been overwhelming. Thank you! 🙂
