    I was searching the internet ... I have seen info at the endo about CWD but it has never been mentioned. This site has been so great and supportive .. they really need to tell parents when in hospital ...

    From a friend who wrote me a supportive letter and then listed the website. Though I've just started the forums, I've been on the chat for many years since I was 13. I'm 24 now.

    I began looking for information on pumps around 10 years ago. I used to chat a lot but the chat has been less busy.

    I found it through someone who has a CWD. However, the next time I was at our endo's office, I saw information about this site. So really it's both.

    I found it myself with Google. On our first horrible scary night home from the hospital, I couldn't sleep,got online and searched for some kind of support group. I couldn't even tell you what exactly I typed in,but it led me here.

    Was listed on some info we received at the hospital at dx--but was so overwhelmed I never really checked it out until a couple of months ago. BIG mistake that I waited. All that time, I had so many questions I didn't feel my endo could answer--and this was the place I could have gone!! Still have tons of questions and am so grateful I finally checked it out. People here are the best!:cwds:

    none of the above.

    I found the CWD site on an advertisement on a bottle of sugar free syrup. A few clicks later, I found the forum :D

    There used to be a website called Mellisa's(I think) her nick name was POM, when her site when down a few times, we were directed here. That was in the late 90's. I think I've been here almost since the beginning, At least within a few years!

    Among the tons of material the hospital gave us at dx. And I think they mentioned it in our class. I was also referred by online friends who were already here.

    My endo. He was trying to talk me out of the pump a few months after dx and suggested I go to this site to learn about other parents' experiences with the technology. It was good advice although didn't go the way I think he had hoped.

    We found CWD via google. It wasn't the first forum we found but it was our favorite.

    My wife found CWD when we were trying to find somebody else in the same position as us. It was a month or two before we got a result. I've posted this once before on here but this article tells the story of what happened.

    A few years on and there are now about ten families around the world that keep in touch and support each other through Facebook, and it all started with CWD!
