Hey Joshua, glad you found us. I’ve enjoyed chatting with you inn the chat room, nice to see you on the forum and letting us get to know you better. We have lots of members from the Atlanta area (I assume you live near Atlanta). Right now I’m thinking of @Stoner - I think she lives just outside of ATL. She’s pretty involved with type1 advocacy if you’d like to get more involved yourself, she’s a really good person and friend to many of us here at TuD.

@Joshua_cordle Get ready for a wonderful, sometimes wild, ride! I was diagnosed 45 years ago at 19 yrs old, exactly two weeks before I started Dental school.

With all of the support and technological advances you have available today you should be able to slay this dragon and have a great and healthy life.

Best of luck on your journey!
