I'm in South Carolina. Nice to be a part of this group. My daughter started on the Pod Jan. 8, 2010 and loving every minute of pumping. She started on insulin Oct. 2009.

Hello all, I know that I am on the very edge of SE USA, but as far as I can tell there is no other groups that would include Arkansas.

Hello everyone, my name is Chris, I live in Charlotte NC. I am a type 1 diabetic, and have been sine I was 11, will be 36 in March. I have not let it get in my way, and ahve always tried to do new things, sports wise and activity wise. I finally broke down and went on the pump back in July of 09, and after much hesitation, it is the best thing I have ever done. A1C has droped 1 whole point in 6 months and man I feel great. I am on hte omnipod, and after some trial and error with it at first, it is the bet thing for me. My line of work is a Land Surveyor, and well my conditions change daily, and the tubing was not going to cut it for me, plus I am very active swim bike etc, and having to take off the other pumps becaise they are not water proof, well that was not an option for me. If you ahve had any issues with the pod staying on, please contact me, I have seveal products I use that to me are a necessity for keeping the pod inplace.

Hi everyone! I live in Atlanta via Destin, Florida, only for school. I'm a type 1 diagnosed June of this year right before my 28th birthday after being sick for months! My life has been turned upside down, inside out in the last few months! Having diabetes isn't a walk in the park, that's for sure!

Hi, my name is Dot and I was diagnosed with Type 2 on May 26, 2009. On 2 grams of Metformin but so far my lowest bg has been 127. I'm probably easting too many carbs...before now I had never really counted vegetables (broccolli, green beans) as carbs! Anyway, I live in Atlanta, GA and would like to be a member of this group!
