    My Mum was diagnosed with type 1 when she was around 39-40 years old. The Drs said she developed it after going into shock after her mother passed away, but I don't know if that's right or not..

    I know it's an awful thing to have, it led to her having many hypos, always needing her jelly beans and sweet things on hand, she lost a foot as a result of complications with it and also had so many issues with her sight.. I have given her injections and watched her have them, seen the bruises she had.. It's horrible.

    After watching Mum live with this, I would never judge someone who is drinking soft drink or juice, I have seen Mum in a really bad way having to scull a pepsi -a drink she hated - just to come good.

    A friend was recently diagnosed with type 2, she is slim but has always eaten far too much..

    Dd1 is an IDDM (type 1). We have also had many a tut from onlookers when she has been knocking back a lemonade!
    It also frustrates the heck out of her that people assume she can't eat anything with sugar in it. She is able to have 'sometimes' food in moderation just like everyone else.

    She has missed out on many a birthday party as other kids parents don't want to cater for her. DD1 does not need to be catered for, normally there is something there she can eat, otherwise she has her own snacks
