I am Teddi, Mom to Kelton who was dx'ed September 1st, 2003. I was a single mom for a very long time, until Kelton turned 13. I am now married and have a bonus non-D son Nikolas who is 13. Mark is my husband who I have been married to for two years now, he is retired Navy and is now a Defense Contractor for the Navy. He works long hours and quality time is spent on weekends. I too have D, was dx'ed on March 11th, 2008 with LADA, but knew something was up way before then. It is just that all of the doctor's didn't want to give me an official diagnosis, until they had no choice but to. I used to have a career in Law Enforcement, just wasn't for me..I am now a Nature Photographer and a SAHM and I fill out surveys online and get paid to do this (not a lot, but any amount of extra money is helpful). I love to read, and I am a very reserved person and it takes me time to warm up to new people, but once I do, I maintain life long friendships with them. My husband tells me I am too generous for my own good, but that is ok, it is better to be generous than to be stingy.
