    As my late Grannie used to tell me: "I'm as old as my tongue and a litle older than (what's left of my ) teeth...", and I've lived on Planet Earth for over three quarters of a century...but so far only four and a half of those years as a T2. :D

    25 currently, currently coming to grips that I'm 26 this year. Mid to late 20s, not sure how I feel about that.

    Though not a diabetic I grew up with a father suffering many consequences of type 2 and despite many changes he still does not change. My grandfather also suffered so I do monitor my own bloods and weight.
