Hi everyone I just wanted to see if there were others out there just like me.

I was misdiagnosed as T2D for 5 years until I almost died earlier this year then found out my gp & I were right all along that I am in fact T1D not 2.

I have finally after 3 years of fighting & 5 endos been approved for an insulin pump.

I will be starting that as soon as I get a phone call from clinic that it has arrived.

I'm so excited.

I would love to get in contact with people just like me anywhere in the world. File size is too big

    @Bluespots, glad to hear of a proper diagnosis! These things are seldom as cut and dried as they might seem. Does the pump include a continuous glucose monitor as well?

    (I remain T2 so don't have a CGM ..yet)
