Courtney replied to Magnifmeggers's discussion 'How's the pain?' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"I don't use the CGM, but I've noticed that if the pump ever does really hurt for more than a couple seconds, then it's probably kinked. I've tried other infusion sets too and keep going back to the quick sets. However, whenever I…"

Introduction and Venting

Posted on May 23, 2011 at 1:30pm 9 Comments

Hello All,



Just wanted to introduce myself and vent a little... for anyone who wants to read it.



I'm Courtney, I'm 25, and am an RN in Minnesota. I've been a Type 1 diabetic since age 12 and hate nothing more. I've also had depression for the last 5 or so years which doesn't help at all. It seems like no matter how hard I try at managing my blood sugars I still have uncontrollable spikes that come out of nowhere. I currently use a minimed pump which I love a whole lot more… Continue

Hi Courtney... Glad I made you smile... although it's probably just gas ;-)
The hardest part about posting pictures at tuD is deciding which pictures to post at tuD. I have soooo many. Many moons ago, we went on an RV camping trip with my hubby's son and his young family and I picked up the nickname of "CrickCrick" since that's what I spent so much of my vacation time doing... with the camera - almost non-stop! At least now it's waaay cheaper since I don't have to pay for all those shots and put up with someone else's bland colour schemes. I love digital photography - it makes even us amateurs look way better than we are!
And I can appreciate your 'landscape' in Minnesota and respect that you're considerably north of me down here in this little Great Lake Grotto of SW Ontario. You Mid-westerners get more snow and cold than we ever do here but we get to deal with all this dank humidity instead.
So... where are YOUR pictures? I see the handsome hubby and the pooch - you might like to say 'hey' to a gal named Lotsofshots here, as her hound, Suri, looks a lot like yours. She is also a busy bright professional who would understand your mood "swings". Why are they called "swings" - doesn't that connotate something bright and cheery? like dancing and teeter totters? Mood dives! seems more appropriate. But even the 'dives' generally have an exit point and an upward path. Hang out at the high spots, if you can find them. And that includes tuD. I'm a relative newbie here myself, having signed up last August and I've missed the last couple months with my nose in a pile of tax papers. But you can't find a more compassionate and knowledgeable buncha people! If you've got a question... somebody here can answer it! These people know everything there is to know about dealing with diabetes and its many highs and lows (aka "swings" :-). So take your parka 'n mukluks off, get comfy and get to know some TuD peeps.
