You had a lot of questions, including how he manages overnight lows:

Benny is 17, he was diagnosed just before he turned two and, as usual, he has a lot to say. He had quite a few adventures at camp, but everything turned out okay. We get his take on independence, responsibility and a glimpse into how a teen with type 1 thinks.
