Okay I guess I should stop lurking and finally say something. My name is Jen and I joined because my youngest daughter is diabetic. She was diagnosed in March of last year. She wears a medtronic minimed pump and has for about the last year. Chasey is a very outgoing and loving child. Although she has diabetes, it doesn't rule her, but I think that's more a case of Chasey not taking crap from anyone or anything.
We have a great medical team and Chasey just adores her 'diabetes doctor', as she calls her. We have had an up and down year, but it's alright because we made it through.
I am just looking to connect with other people that understand what I am dealing with and who can maybe help me understand what Chasey might be going through or what she might face in the future. Mostly I want some friends that won't judge and just get it.
