I'm no stranger to this "chronic health condition" known as type1 Diabetes. I was diagnosed at 10 years old. I'm now 17. This is the 1st time I have come across a site like this. I would love to talk to some other type 1's around my age. My 1st question: "free foods" foods under 7 carbs, what are some favorites?? I seem to get "the munchies" in the afternoon, and sometimes the night (I'm a night owl) and it seems like there are only a few.... 2nd question: 2 daily injections vs. pump What do you like/dislike about both of them. I have just been doing 2 daily injections since I was dx'ed but would like to look into a pump. 3rd: snacking.... what do you do when you get "the munchies"? I try to grab some popcorn, since it is "free food" under 7 carbs. but sometimes, popcorn gets old. 4th: SS disability. my mom wants to apply me for what they called a "adult child benefit" which is basically disability on a parents work record, because I was dx'ed before age 22. Has anyone ever done this? I have never heard about it. 5th: college & diabetes.... I don't even know where to begin there. I am planning on attending a University in fall '13. 6th: working & diabetes. how do you manage? Sorry if this is wayy to many questions. My family has a history of both type's but everyone else I know of (grandma was 1 of 13 kids, really big extended family && I probably only know about 1/4 of them) is type2.
