Hi Kelly,
I'm coming to realize that I'd like to have some friend/acquaintances in real life with diabetes, so I'm messaging folks who live in SF to see if they're interested in getting together. Let me know if you're interested! Cheers. :)

hi Kelly. I really like the website: sharp looking and sharper content, me thinks.

MInimed 522 & the sensors/transmitter are what I'm using. I like what I read about the Omnipod. Which pump are you using?

THX for your kind words, Kelly!

Upss! I guess I should have know who you are... Manuel teased me in the morning. I could say it was the time, but really, it is that I am just leaning a lot of all the great people, sites and information available. I think your site its amazing, I will check it up later with more brain cell awake. :)

Well, thank you very much for your kind comments on my blog... after I read them I felt like going to sleep and I probably had a smile on my face the whole night. Really, I feel humbled and honored! Thank you so much!

Also, I created a group "type III" for all the people that doesn't have diabetes but is affected by it, partners, spouses, parents, children, friends, etc. It does not have too much movement honestly, but I touch maybe you want to let him know.

Have a great night!
