That Card

Everyone gets dealt a hand of cards
Weather they're the cards you wanted or not.
Over time you gain cards, some good, some bad.
I was dealt a card not to long ago
A card that I hate.
I sometimes hide this card from people.
This is a card I want to put in the shredder

Parent, Child Duo!!

Hey everyone,
My mom was talking to the JDRF represenitive of Central Iowa and South Dakota and she was saying how my dad and I both have type one diabetes. She told us that we were the only ones.

Which makes me wonder is this more rare then I thought?
Pleas give me a shout out if you are Parent, Child Duo!

Have a spectacular day,

Listen to this song!!

hey everyone!
I really connect to music and relate it to life. One song I found that I loved and pulled me through the first couple months of being Diabetic. The song is Welcome To My Life by Simple Plan.The lyrics describe exactly what I was feeling. The first time I heard it i cried. The phase that touched me the most is, Are you stuck inside a world you hate? I think any diabetics can relate to this song.

Hey everyone, I am really looking forward to getting a pump! Although I am not sure when i will be able to get one? How long were you on shots before you were able to get a pump. I was diagnosed last November. My sugars are VERY regular, they are rarely above 130. I HATE SHOTS! I have been looking at pumps and i really like the Omnipod. Well for now I just want to know when i can get a pump.
