I would like to share with you the motivation I get from being able to outrun people who do not share what we all have here, being type 1 diabetics. I play basketball 3-4 times a week which keeps my…Continue

My name is Sam, I have been called Rotti for the longest time. I was diagnosed a week before my 18th birthday, which wasnt the 18th birthday present that God promised me the week before. I have learned that Diabetes is 1 24/7 thing without days off. I like this site because I can open up about my good and bad days with being a type 1 diabetic, knowing that you are out there dealing with the same things. This makes it quite comforting knowing I am not alone in this. I love to play basketball and any type of sport which has me running around. I grew up in LA and moved to NY in September 2010. Keep on smiling :)

Convince me to switch to the pump

Posted on January 31, 2012 at 9:07am 15 Comments

Today I could use some convincing from my other betes friends about switching to the pump. My biggest issue is that I will have to carry this huge thing on my hip at all times. I am active and play basketball up to 4 times in a week (alternative instead of the treadmill, I get easily bored and distracted)and am scared the pump will get in way of me playing physical sports. If any other people here play basketball or other physical sports please discuss this topic with me. Others discuss as…

Hey Rotti, thanks for the invite! How are you liking New York after growing up in LA? I bet it was quite the adjustment.

Thanks for the note! I'm fine, the 5.6 is up as the time before I was @ 5.0 so I was sort of bummed but am too busy to get really bent out of shape about it. It includes a pump blowing up (story in "Wild and Crazy weekend just got wilder" thread on my page if you are interested...it seems to go on for a while though) and resetting the thing twice as I think it got out of whack before it blew up? Running is going well, I had a really great 20 mile pre-marathon run on Saturday and will have the marathon 100911! I visited NYC in August and did a 17 mile run there that was a lot of fun too, up the Hudson and back up 125th street and looping around Central Park a couple of times and finishing barrelling through the Alexander McQueen crowds with blood from a pulled sensor all over my abdomen...classic, no pics unfortunately...
