About me...

My life is a constant irrational display of irony and hypocrisy, wrapped up in a neat little anachronistic bundle. Yay!

okay, so Ive been diabetic type1 for about 6 years, and I've been dealing with it...switched insulin types a bunch of times, and I just started using the pump last august! Its good at times, bad at others....had a few "no delivery's" here and there.....but over all its made life alot easier. no more 6 shots a day or sneaking of into the bathroom to whip out a syringe.

but anyways!

Now a little about me! My bangs are blue. Yep, blue, I'm a provocative- extrovert with a introspective side and a tendency to dance in random places. Music is everything to me and probably the purest savior one can have besides the aesthetic pleasures of the world. I DJ my very own radio show " the EPIC show" --its metal/hardcore/the-good-stuff-yo-momma-never-let-you-hear![Thursdays 11pm-1am, streaming on WFNP.org] Music and art have helped me get through a lot of the stress, anxiety, etc that diabetes has given me.

Oh an did i mention im an artist? i absolutely am enamored with art. I paint, draw, and create tshirts(mostly for bands).

Hey, Hello!

I'm using Tudiabetes as a way to connect with fellow young adults with diabetes. I'm a University of South Florida student and president of our chapter of "Students with Diabetes." We're hosting a national conference June 1st - 3rd in Tampa and want to bring in as many Type I diabetics (18 - 30yrs) as possible from across the country.

Anyway! The conference costs $55 dollars total. Housing, food, & activities like Busch Gardens are included in the price, but we cannot pay for transportation. Please let me know if you are interested in any of this and/or visit our website for more information!

Yes, I had a month where my pods just sucked, I blame it on a box of bad pods. Other than that Its been great. the occasional failure/occlussion will never make me change to a different pump...

YES! I love my pod!!! makes my life so much easier, and no I have never had another pump. I really dont like the tubing. Just started my pod last sept. and A1C dropped from 9.1 to 6.0

haha the questions are always welcome :) in regard to making it by without insurance it's really difficult, I've just succeeded in getting a year's worth of lantus from sanofi-aventis and am in the process of scoring some humalog from eli lilly, my doc has been my primary care physician since i was about 13 so he does some creative paperwork to get my office visits and labwork taken care of ;) i'm not sure how legal that is but he's a friend of my mom's so that helps, basically i go to school full-time and have 2 part-time jobs to cover supplies, i tend not to eat much haha :)
as for the drinking, everyone's body is different, what i do is back off a bit on my bolus shots to account for the alcohol's bg-lowering effect, about the same as i do for a 90 minute-120 minute intense workout. but it may be different for you, i'd suggest experimenting slowly and making sure you carry some sort of glucose with you all the time that you are drinking :)
