    Mr. Kelly - Sorry to hear how diabetes effected you as a teenager. I help alot of teens and their families - and they are often the hardest hit when being diagnosed as a teenager. I was 7 when diagnosed, for me, it really didn't make much of a difference. Having had it that long, it was just part of what I am and I never let it effect me in any way with social aspects, etc. Most people didn't even know I was a diabetic when I think about it. Supposedly, I don't look or act like one !
