One thing

The one thing you can guarantee that we people living with type 1 have in common with each other?

We hate it. Sure, we'll tell you that it's fine, everything is good, no need for concern. But we hate it. There's nothing more all of us would like than to return it to its sender.

Despite that, we're positive. If we sat there hating all day, we'd never get anywhere. We'd never move on. I think it shows great strength in all of us that we have something that could so easily consume us, yet we find all the positives. We find the stuff that makes life good alongside this stupid condition.

But I really, really hate it.

Couldn't agree more, my friend. It does suck, and I do hate it - despite all the positive talk and attitudes. Thanks for sharing this.

I hate it too. But just get on with it as I have to.
A high proportion of my American friends in the DOC say they don't, but they don't all convince me!
