Just wanted to introduce myself. Hopefully this is the right place to do so!
My name’s Steve, I’m a Type 1.5-ish American living in Israel. 28 years old, been insulin/pump dependent for about 6 years or so.
I decided to seek out a group because I was tired of being the only one like me around The first 5 years I’d say I had everything mostly under control, but the last 6 months I feel like everything has slipped (mostly moving to a new country, working on my research grant, job, etc) and I’d like to get ahold of myself again.
I live a pretty good life - lots of fun, friends, food, travel, love, music (my guitar is my best friend, next to my girlfriend!) For me it doesn’t get any better than the Beatles, and if not the Beatles then something new and exciting.
Truthfully, I know very little about my disease - I simply learned what foods I should eat, how to count carbs, and studied how my body reacted. Being a software engineer is good for following inputs/outputs! But now I wish I knew more so I could make educated decisions - does anyone have any recommendations for online reading/books?
Thanks! Looking forward to participating,
