I have been in the dark for so long because I turned my back on my diabetes. I'm not saying that I didn't take care of it, i just didn't listen to what my Doctor had to say about it. I was contempt to living in the past with my bottles of R and N, not learning any new stuff or sharing about my experiences but now here I am.
I am still in my closet about letting my friends know, and i maybe still there for a little while longer.
Since November I have a new diabetes doctor and and a nurse/educator. It was the first Doctor that stopped and listened to me and my concerns ( I was shocked) and between my doctor and my educator I still get to make decisions on my health.
Now I'm on lantus and novolog insulin which is the "first steps" to migrating to a pump. I also have my first carb counting class coming up next week too. I have to say I'm looking forward to it.
I also need to pick a pump too. Its the first time in my diabetic life that I felt like a little kid in the candy store trying to pick stuff out, I really fell good about it :)
I'm down to 2 choices: Ping or Minimed. I like the ping for discretion and privacy, the minimed for the extra 100 units it can carry. Im really leaning toward the ping.
In any case I just wanted to thank everybody for the support here, without it I would still be living in the past......
