Intro

Hi, I'm Snarky Cat and I've been diabetic for about a year and a half. I was 24 when I was diagnosed type 1. Diabetes runs in both sides of my family, including my dad, who has been diabetic for 32 years (I think). So I wasn't really surprised when I got it too; I figured I was probably going to get it some day and I would deal with it when that day came. I take Novolog, and Lantus twice a day.

I have also been childfree since a few years before I became diabetic. Mostly because I don't like kids very much to begin with. Plus pregnancy and childbirth really freak me out. When I was on the fence about having kids I thought adoption might not be so bad, but becoming diabetic really sealed the deal; I'm really glad I don't have a kid (or ten!) to deal with on top of this shit. (Plus I'm po'.)

I hope you enjoy this community and I hope I will be good at carrying out mod duties. Cheers!

Hi there! I saw your post in cf_hardcore and hopped on over!

I'm 27, and was just diagnosed as pre-diabetic, Type II, in October. Almost everyone in my family gets Type II in old age, but due to some fuck-ups on the part of a psychiatrist (prescribing seizure meds off-label), I got (un)lucky.

So I'm trying to control with food and exercise and 150mg of Metformin daily, which also helps the PCOS. I'm doing fair so far. Its a hard thing to adjust to, for sure.
