I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on christmas eve of 1981 ... I was only 5 years old. My father was type 1 so my parents recognized the symptoms immediately and fortunately that was to my benefit since they caught it early. After being on MDIs for 25 years and my current endo mentioning how great the pump is for a few years, I finally decided to take the plunge in December 2006. It created a whole new outlook on my diabetes management and I haven't looked back since!! I could seriously kick myself for not going on the pump sooner!! I try not to dwell on that aspect and instead just LOVE my pump and what it does for me!
I have an identical twin sister who has provided the greatest nephew and niece I could ever ask for :) I've been married since 2003 to a wonderful guy who is also an identical twin ... and no my sister is not married to his brother ha ha. My father passed away from diabetes complications in 2003 and not a day goes by that my heart doesn't ache and I don't think of him.
I work for an investment bank in the Regulatory area .. something I've been doing for 10+ years. It's good $$ and I enjoy it but sometimes the hours are just too much. But I give my all to everything I do and that is no different.
I love shopping, new technology devices, spring and fall weather, my 2 fuzzy ferrets, relaxing or even better sleeping, cute and mushy emails, a good movie, texting, laughter.
