my name is Amzie. i am 25 yrs old, diagnosed at the age of 19 and have been on the pump for 1 year now. i currently live in St. Paul, MN, working as an artist and teaching assistant. i haven't had much support from friends and family... maybe i shouldn't say that, they try, but they just don't get "it". i am hoping to find others who i can relate to here!
happy new year.
Sorry I got to this post late. Been trying to get through a lot of content here! Sorry you don't have the support you need maybe you can try explaining diabetes to your family in a way they can understand it without getting yourself all flustered.
You definitely have a great support team here! Try joining the Adults group where you can find more people your age to talk with that may be going through the same things you are.

This disease definitely comes with its moments and there are times where it's nice to have folks around who really get it... not sure I appreciated how nice that is until I saw this site. Welcome to Juvenation, happy new year and I look forward to seeing you around the posts!
