Hi, I`ve been a type 1 diabetic since I was thirteen (24 now). I`ve been focusing my life on a possible better future, focusing on keep studying my ass off to get a good job (Ì`m a graduating lawyer in Brazil). Nevertheless, I`ve only recently realised that I don`t know any type one diabetic over 50 years old. When I was a teenager I used to practice a lot of sport and my blood control was way better. Starting to work and study hard, there is no time and it all seems pointless. My health is going downwards. Is it worth to sacrifice a good control to be able to work and study harder so maybe in the future it will all be better? Anyway, is there any type one diabetic who is old enough and got through that? Thank you.
