    I was only 25 when I was diagnosed with T2. Youngest I've heard of.
    Sucks. Should have taken the warning signs.

    Do you ever just read someones comment about the year of diagnosis and think, “woah, that’s so long, (I mean 37 is not the longest I’ve seen but when you see it; you are like Oh My Goddd!!!! That is so long. Lol, hope yous understand. Like beings diabetic for that long I don’t feel like I can do it. But I know I will. It’s when you look at the number and take a breath.

    You’ve did so well. I hope diabetes treated you well. @youngl31

    I’m coming up 13years 9months.

    In the year twenty five twenty five. If man is still alive.......:singing:

    Cats could well evolve into tripods using the tail for balance. The front legs no longer needed to catch prey & tinned food or pouches easier to open... ;)
