Live, Laugh and Share!


I'm psyched to have discovered the Juvenation community. I'm a Type 1 and have been for four years. I first had Gestational, and then after I popped out my little girl, surprise, I gave birth to Type 1 as well...

It's taken me awhile to put myself out there and meet others in the DOC, but I'm ready, willing and able :)

I recently put up a blog at with the tagline "Laughter is the best medicine, and insulin doesn't hurt either." It's a sketch comedy site all about Diabetes, meant to inform, entertain and raise awareness.

Would love to connect with more D-peeps.  I live in Chandler, AZ, but have also lived in NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas and Sydney. I wear an Animas Pump. Nice to meet ya!

HI Mandy, welcome to juvenation! I am Jaimie i have been a type 1 since I was 3 1/2. When I was 10 I got the pump. 12 years since january, 1998. I was like you when I was younger. I did not want people to know that I had diabetes. So I would always hid it. but my gread know that i was a type 1. I am still kind of that way. I live in Edmore,MI. I would love to get to know you more. I love the change to meet D-pees and parents of D-peeps.

Hey Mandy, Welcome! I have had Type 1 since 1993 and just live day by day to the fullest. I am from Tennessee and personally only know 1 person with type 1 diabetes.  Look forward to talking with you.

Hi  Mandy, Leah here. I have been a type 1 diabetic since I was that seems like forever ago.....and am currently on a pump. I have family members with type 1 diabetes, and I think we all pretty much hate the disease, however, what do we do? I am glad that you joined! I have also just done the same after surfing facebook....hope all goes well with you and if you need anything, just give me a yell! =)
