My name is Tammy and I am currently 27 years old and have lived with T1D for 18years. I live in the most isolated city in the world: Perth, Western Australia. However, I grew up in a tiny country town on a farm with my parents and three older sisters! I was diagnosed on a family holiday in New Zealand back in 1997; I was so ill on the day of diagnosis that I could no longer run, walk or stand. It was a massive learning curve as my parents knew minimal about the disease, while my sisters and I had never heard of it.
