What about me?

Hello Fellow Diabetics,

My name is Angie. I am a 26 year old Type 1 diabetic using an insulin pump to manage my diabetes. (Though lately it has been difficult to keep my levels under control. Trying different things to see if it helps, what else can you do?) I am looking into a different model than the Accu-check Spirit I am currently using. Any suggestions and experiences with other models would be more than welcomed!

I am starting Graduate school this fall to study Public Administration with an emphasis in Non-Profit Organizations. My goal is to operate an organization to assist individuals with disabilities. This will be a long and difficult task but a good challenge at the same time.

I love the colors black and purple (most my wardrobe consists of these colors). As well as horror movies, shoes/boots, make-up, cartoons, Diet Mountain Dew (I miss Mountain Dew Slurpees), sushi, curry, books of all sorts, learning, and many other things that are escaping my thoughts currently.

I look forward to meeting other people who live with diabetes and receiving the advise and knowledge that can only be discovered living with this condition. I am sure that are I have experiences that can help others as well.

I like the Ping. I looked at this one and the Medtronic and Omnipod. I ruled out the Omnipod quickly because - the tubing actually allows me to change locations depending on what I'm wearing and I had also heard about a lot of pod problems. I opted for the ping because it is water proof. I also like the remote because I can send myself insulin and people are just thinking I'm on a blackberry or something. It affords me some discretion in business meetings that way (particularly on days when I attach the pump to my bra -- last thing I want to do is whip it out). I liked the CGM feature on Medtronic but you still can't rely on that for bolusing -- you need to test. So I didn't see that as a huge advantage. Animas is working with Dexcom to come out with a CGM on an upcoming model. I have found Animas support to be outstanding.
