Hey everyone I'm amanda and I just joined this site. I have had t1 for over 14 years. I have recently gotten the Medtronic insulin pump and am planning on attending central connecticut state university. Would love to talk to other kids going away to college! I work two jobs, love hanging out with my friends, and love being active! So happy I found this site full of support. Would love to chat :)
