Hi, I'm Bronwyn and have been a type 1 diabetic for 28 years now - was diagnosed when I was 12. I have two daughters who are 8 and 12 years old and I am constantly worried they will get it too - my 12 year old wants to take part in the diabetic screen research which measures for antibodies, but I am not sure whether that would worry me even more. I have struggled with a lot of mental health issues for the past few years which led to my Hba1c rising very badly because I was not taking care of things, but more recently I have brought things back under control though now struggling with a bit of hypoglycaemic unawareness. Look forward to getting to know everyone.
