How many of you were diagnosed with diabetes after you became adults later in life? My husband was diagnosed at age 33 and it has really blown him away. I was wondering how others dealt with the news. Since most people are dignosed as children and grow up with it as a part of who they always have been it seems like they handle it better than being diagnosed as an adult. Am I wrong? I don't know anyone else who was diagnosed as an adult to ask about their feelings on the subject. I do however know a child who has type 1 but she has had it for as long as she can remember so its not a big deal to her its just something thats always been there. I look forward to your answers and your thoughts on the subject.
