Hello, My name is Tricia and I am a 16 year old sister to a type 1 diabetic. His name is Micah and he is 7 years old. He has been diagnosed since April 23, 2006 and has been pumping for almost a year now. I have lived through the dx and the ups and downs of diabetes. We are homeschooled so I live it everyday. It has now just become a part of life. I would love to talk to other diabetics and siblings of diabetics. Please share your stories and anything. Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks.
