Hi everyone. I am a 22 y/o college student going into my senior year this fall. I was shocked with my sudden diagnoses of Type 1 diabetes this past Wednesday, May 28, 2009. I have no family history, and am an otherwise healthy and active individual. So, my diagnosis came as quite a surprise. I went to the doctor because of my feeling excessively thirsty (and being unable to quench that thirst), and using the bathroom too many times during the middle of the night.
Are there any other folks here who were diagnosed in the midst of college? I loved going out and having beers with my friends, and eating pizza and burgers on occasion...Is all of this going to change now?
