Welcome! This is a great site to be a member of! It's nice to be able to see that other people have the same concerns and questions.
Hi Cori, and Welcome. Like Rachel said it is a great site to be and to find the support you want as well. I know how you feel I am 21 and had type 1 diabetes for 14 years now. Its hard but you will meet a lot of people on this site to bring you the support you need. Best of Luck and talk to you soon.
Welcome aboard! I (prefer to) believe we all struggle from time to time. I find it oddly comforting that - just like none of my good times last forever - neither do the tougher moments. 23 years of this is - well - a lot - and it's great to see you active and reaching out and engaged in caring for yourself. I know it's been mentioned already but I can't help but say it again - we've got a lot of good people and resources here and while I think the REASON we're all here sucks - I've found myself much grateful for the company, insight and the many assists from those on these pages.
I'm looking forward to seeing you around the posts!
