My story

Posted on September 19, 2007 at 9:22am 9 Comments

I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 7. I don't remember life before diabetes....and honestly, I think that's for the best. My mom is my best friend in the whole world, mainly because she's the only person that understands me and the struggle I have with my diabetes. She's also an amazing lady. It just happens that the diabetes is what has caused us to maintain our close relationship. I was put on a pump at the age of 14, and it has been amazing. Unfortunately, the pump is very…

I am sure that we will pray through alot together! I irritate my husband enough bugging him about his sugar levels, I'm sure I'll drive David nuts too! How did your mom do at letting you take over and backing off and when did she? My husband's mom drove him nuts and spoiled him by not making him responsible when he was at home. I wonder how I'll do that delicate balance of being there and encouraging, yet making him do what he can do... Sorry for my ramblings :)

I wrote on my own wall...I'm not too smart. My boy will go through a rebellious phase! What a blessing to have such a wonderful mom to help you. What was the biggest thing she did to help?

Welcome to the site. I was also diagnosed when I was 7. I have an aunt & uncle that live in South Carolina. Love your beaches there!

Hi Kathryn

I'm glad you found your way here. I think you'll find a lot of useful information in these parts. I'm in the middle of investigating new pumps myself. I've already tried the Cozmo and it's pretty nice. Very customizable, which might drive some people nuts. I'm hoping to try an Animas in the new few weeks.

Good luck on your quest for a new one. I think you'll really like the features in all of the current pumps.
