I went to this great sleep away diabetes camp when I was a freshman in highschool through the joclyn center?? called Clara Barton diabetes camp or something... it was actually in the Boston area. I used to live on long island. I didn't want to go... my parents forced me... So glad they did bc I had a great time! This was back in 96 I believe... lol. only 1 person in our whole group was in a pump at the time... lol. I was 11 when diagnosed too and felt so alienated and alone... I hope you find friends and ppl to connect with. the internet is such a great resource!
