Hi Nat. To your response from Thursday.... I just know I have to to survive.... I am used to jumping in head first into things in life. I have to really watch out for myself because when I was diagnosed a few months back, I was disowned from my family and friends. I am a University student and that makes it really a weird time to deal with this. Yeah I do mess up lots because I don't know what I am doing still, but I learn from it.

If you want to experience the ultimate diabetes rejuvenation then go to a diabetes camp! 
I go to Clara Barton camp which is my true home. I am going to be a Councilor in training this year. 
Camp is something every diabetic should experience. 

Words can't describe the feeling of being surrounded in people who understand.  People who love you 5 minutes after you meet them is great to be able to just hand over your pump and have a CDE take care of you
You don't can hand over your pump and have them bOlus you. 

If you are under the age of 18 you can go be a camper. 

It is the ultimate vacation.
