Elyssa's Type 1 Diabetes Diagnosis

I have never blogged before but my 2 yr 8 month old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes now I am left with so many questions and looking for answers. Our lives changed forever the night of July 1st, 2011. So much happened and I had so much to say I put the story on it's own page. It was a night, a weekend, a 5 day hospital stay I will surely never forget.


  1. Hi and welcome to the DOC! I was in your shoes exactly 1 year ago to the day! My son Josh was diagnosed on July 1st 2010 at age 6. I know how shocked and numb you must feel. It's not fair and it sucks. If you need someone to talk to who hasn't forgotten that first year, feel free to email me.

  2. daughter was diagnosed in November.

  3. Welcome to the DOC!! I am a T1 who is 22. I was diagnosed when I was 15. We are all here for you on this journey. I know it's going to be a tough ride, but we will get through this together.
