Hi John,
I was just going to ask you to be my friend when I saw your request! I wanted to ask you what you think of pumping, but figured the personal question wouldn't be relevent in that discussion. Thanks!

Done almost all that except by the time I got Diabetes they had came out with the disposable syringes with the needles in them. The U40 beef and pork insulin? Been there and done that for years. My 1st cousin took TYpe 1 in the late 50's and told me all about the glass syringes and sharping the needles. Back when took Type 1 the DR sent me to the county hospital (VERY small town and county) for a blood draw. The thing I remember the most about it was (aside from the fact I was screaming my head off) my mom fainted at the sight of blood. Didn't know she would do that til then. Fell out like a light at the foot of the lab bed! Oh how times have changed. That double void made me HATE plain water b/c my 1st urine wasn't any good then my great uncle and aunt had copper pipes to their pump and I had to drink about 10 glasses of water b/f I could eat breakfast and threw it all up never got breakfast. Decided then and there (at 10) I hated water and the only time I drink just plain water since is when I'm way high. Like 450 or something. Been married to the same man for 26 years and told him if he saw me drinking pure water to take me to the ER and I would probably argue with him about that! LOL! He's had to do it a few times but I also seize from anything below 21 and bless him & my kids they've seen that a few times too. No warning system anymore when I go low.
