    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I haven't been on to chat with all y'all for a bit but I am back. Cadence just passed her 5 month mark since diagnosis & is going great! She is pumping now & we LOVE it!! We are still trying to get her numbers under control, but the pump has made life for her (& me!) much easier. I am hoping all her highs start to even out soon. They seem to stay in a pattern for a week - 10 days then change. IDK. I still feel new to all this, but at the same time it seems as if life has always been this way. Just wanted to thank everyone who responded before & welcomed us here. It truely helped!

    Hi there. Glad you are popping in and things are going well. I'm not sure if I gave you some good links the last time, but there are a couple of sites that have lots of T1s and T1 parents. There is Diabetes Daily and also Children with Diabetes and also Juvenation. I like DD the best as far as quantity of T1s. There are kids as well as a pair of folks who have a combined T1 experience of over 110 years complication free.
