where people touched by diabetes help each other.

My son has accepted a job in Richmond VA. We're proud and excited yet it will be so far from home here in Montana. He will be 20 years old T1 since age 5. Anyone in that area on this app?

Wow. What a scary but exciting time in life. I know my boss moved from Washington to Florida when she was 19 and was diagnosed type 1 when she was 8.

Virginia will be a lot different than Montana. I have lived in Billings, Montana and visited Virginia a few times and it is quite different. I am sure he will do great though. It will just be a time of adjustment and change. I know anytime I move my basal rate and insulin needs seem to change. The other thing when moving is to compensate for the time change. The first time I did time change as a Type 1 it threw me off a bit. Virginia is Type 1 friendly! Good luck with everything!

He will be fine! I've moved all over the country and traveled extensively while I'm sure my parents aged 10 years due to this it's life with or without diabetes.

Thanks for the responses he started his new job last week. We are hopeful the protests there today will not turn violent as he is staying just blocks away from the site.
