(I've moved his post here so all of you will see it.)

So, is this a good place to introduce myself? Consider it done. 32 yr old male in Maine. Type 1 for 5 years, all good! Just been looking around for some diabetes forums and this looks like a good place. Hello!

Welcome "different_seasons, 32 yr old male in Maine".... I'll bet I would remember you better if I had a nickname to call you by... How about Maine Guy? Glad you found us, just sorry for the reason. We are all about sharing and education here so post away and read as far back as you can about the things that relate to you.

Plain old DS is good, as far as nicknames go thankya. Being type 1 doesn't really bother me, I'm super optimistic and usually look at life as a great way to spend 70 years (I hope). Someone out there has it worse than me thats for sure.
 
Ok, Think on this- My brother is also a type 1 (22 yrs) and we are the only ones in my family, my father is into geneology so he would know. He thinks agent orange, but thats just a guess. Ever heard of this happening to the kids of V veterans?

Hello, I don't know about agent orange. I've been type one since I was 13 months old and I too am the ONLY one in my family with it. I was diagnosed shortly after my one year immunizations and that's what my dad thinks did it. He thinks that maybe i already had a weakened immune system, and then the combination of me having a cold right before getting the shot and then the shot is what brought it on. My own daughter luckily does not have diabetes but had some high sugars after her one year immunizations. Kind of makes me wonder if maybe it could be that. Oh well just my two bits! Take care, Robyn

Wow!
I've begun to see more and more discussion about the immunizations and diabetes as well as autism... But then I look at those poor Amish children that were struck down with polio and I am at odds with myself. Seems that no matter what we do we can't make perfect medicine.
