I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.

I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

eesh Kelly, those lows sound pretty bad. I used to take NPH and I could always tell when my sugar was even starting to get low and I would just over-treat and keep going. I drew the line at diet Dr. Pepper though I did get used to saccharine! Congrats on the 30+ years and the children and your commitment to take care of yourself. =) I chose to go on my pump for no particular reason... my little niece was brave enough to try it (T1 at age 12, 4 years ago) and I thought to myself - why not? I did 29 years of shots and it's time for a change!
