I'm not bitter or angry with JDRF for where they focus their efforts. Because Type 1 was originally thought to only present in kids and it was during that time that JDRF was founded it makes sense that this would be where their primary focus is directed. Besides, lets face it, you get a lot more support (and dollars) when cute kids are involved. Nobody notices about the twenty-something guy that is struggling through college trying to balance school, work, and being a pancreas. But put little Sally out there and show how her diagnosis has effected her whole family, talk about how a 3 year old has to endure multiple shots a day, or the burden the cost of supplies puts on her family. That sells. Cute sells. And if that's what brings in donations that will ultimately benefit every person living with T1 then so be it. And from what I hear JDRF has done a better job and supporting adults more recently. And it may well be different depending on your local chapter.
I guess the point I am
