Any Type 1 Diabetics Here?

Hi! I'm always on the lookout to find more type one diabetics like myself, because it's interesting to find new people. Normally I wouldn't post this here, but because I do have my betta Instagram, @officialbetterbetta linked to my diabetes Instagram @sydney t1d, I figured I'd share this here as well. As you may know from my signature, I've had a betta care youtube channel for about 3 years now. BUT I just started a Diabetes YouTube channel as well, for anyone who either wants to learn about it or know more about me. That's all for today! I look forward to posting more!

I'm a Scuba Diver because that's as close as I can get to being a fish.

Me I'm type 2 and have been now since 2000, I had it under control taking pills and watching my diet, until Sep. of this year When for unknown reasons I started having pain in my back one morning which only got worse as the week went on. When I returned home and went to my DR. he sent me for tests. They found an abscess between my chest wall and skin on my right side. Hospitalized for a week and finally they removed all 6 pounds of it. Worst pain I have ever had. Since being released from the hospital and 4 months later I have had to go on insulin. I was disqualified as a CDL driver and retired. The reason for the insulin was because two of the Meds I was taking the insurance co. would not pay for any longer, and the cost for both per mo. was $600.00. Even if I continued to Drive I couldn't afford that. So now being back home full time and retired I went back to keeping my fish, (took that job away from my wife, which she took over when I went back on the road. she is very glad for my retirement in that respect. and it is taking quite the adjustment for me to be this inactive.)

I don't have diabetes but my sister has type 1 and my dad has type 2. Been going to JDRF walks since I was in elementary school! We joke that my mom and I have "type 3" diabetes because we know so much about it and have drawn up hundreds of shots for my sister and dad over the years.
