type1diabetesmemes:

The more diabetics/parents of diabetics I chat with, the more I realize that the first group (diagnosed early) thinks the second group (diagnosed later) had it worse and vice versa. I was diagnosed at 20 and I always get the first response. What is your opinion on the challenges associated with the age you were diagnosed? 

I was diagnosed at 18 and think like the second group, although I have thought about the pros and cons of both (mostly cons I guess). For me, I am glad I got to take care of it instead of having my parents play such a big role.
