Hello. I am reading through the posts on here and I just now signed on. My name is April and I am 26 years old. I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 11, so it has been almost 15 years. I read where you said you wanted to do things just to prove to people that you could when they said you couldn't because of diabetes and I am like that myself. I also saw where you have neuropathy. How long have you had it? How did it start for you? I have the smallest little numb spot on my toe, but I have no other problems with my feet and I have been to the dr about it, but it is so slight that they have no idea yet about it. It doesn't bother me at all, but I was very depressed for the week after I discovered it. I was depressed just knowing that diabetes will eventually take its toll and lead to complications. I am really something of a worrier, I guess. It was nice to hear from someone who has had diabetes for as long as you have. Were you able to have children? You have really accomplished a lot. Reading your post has lifted my spirits. Thank you!
