Struggling with T1D
amber_krys posted:
Trying to make a long story short, at age 21 I joined the military.. perfectly healthy I must say. A week after basic training i was told my sugars were 710 and was admitted into the ER . I was medically discharged a year later. It hit me very hard and just found out my a1c is 13.9 . I have never met a T1D and would love to hear how others take on diabetes and the emotional stress that comes along with it.

Hi Amber. Sorry for the delay in responding. I just saw this. I did answer your post on the T2 board. If you are looking for a large group of T1s, try Diabetes Daily . There are a ton of us over there and are pretty supportive. Not only just a very active T1 forum, but a lot of stuff you can get from T2s as well.

There are nice people here too, but not so many of us and we don't always post that often.
