:-)  I dunno, though.  I'm 27, and was dx'ed on my 3rd birthday.  I can
certainly remember growing up with "sugar is evil" being drilled into my
head, at least at first.

Some of my friends STILL believe that.  One of them insists that "every
diabetic I know cheats".  I told her that the guidelines had changed, and
sugars were allowed if you accounted for them, and her response was a tart
"that just means the doctors caved in because they knew you were all
cheating and wanted to ease the guilt..."

I know she means well, but she can get REALLY annoying sometimes ;-)
