Hey everyone - Nads' post over at: http://juvenation.org/groups/coping_with_diabetes/forum/p/787/5376.aspx#5376 reminded me of something...
Some friends and I had scheduled to go do a static line jump (yes, out of an airplane) at a local parachute club. A week before we were supposed to go, there was a headline in the local paper about a T1D skydiver who had died during a jump. He'd had a hypo on the way down, as it turned out. Anyhow, when we got there and they asked if we had any medical conditions to report, I said "no." I was afraid they wouldn't let me go if they found out I was a T1. So I was wondering... Has anyone else here ever lied about or hidden their diabetes and if so can you tell us when and why?
