Hi everyone. I'm glad I found this forum. I'm 29/Male from Minnesota. I was diagnosed with Type 1 July 10th, 2010 (No family history of the illness). All the usual symptoms were there. After googling my symptoms, I bought a glucose meter at the pharmacy. 377. I'll never forget that first "377" popping up after the countdown on the meter. I was then off to the doctor (my BG there was 425) and now, 4+ months later, here I am.
My "Honeymoon" is pretty much over. It's not all that bad though. I understand, and even like the idea that I am responsible for the management of this illness.
Happy Thanksgiving. I'll look forward to chatting with you all.
