Hi Julie, thinking of you today, have your omnipods arrived yet, best of luck ask away if you have any questions, you will most likely benefit more from your omnipod trainer than your endo, so keep his or her card they are more than willing to come back or answer question. amy

oh, I can't even imagine. He helped his little brother through it for years and then wham! He's got it too? I bet your little one thinks it's cool, though, huh? Now big brother REALLY understands what's going on. haha.

20 is a lot older than 14 when it comes to having to deal w new things in life- but I can feel his pain. It's a HUGE adjustment. i was in denial for 7 years. There's some days when I allow myself to slip back into denial every now and again- just for a break from his 24/7 criminal called Diabetes.

How's your little one dealing with it? Kids seem to be able toa adjust better to changes because they sort of... forget... what it was like to be without it! But, it still breaks my heart every time I see a little kid take insulin. I volunteered at a hospital in CT a few years back, but I couldn't do it! I had to leave the room every time I saw those little kids with their meters and their needles. Ugh!

whereabouts in Virginia? I'm visiting my mother and little brother in Norfolk in June. Maybe he and I can meet up for an hour or two just to chat?

yeah, and GET HIM ON THIS SITE! In person, I'm really quiet about D. But on here, I can be as brave as I want. This site gives me so much courage just to face the next day.

Welcome Home Julie!

I am happy that you are reading this and that you are a member of the growing TuDiabetes family.

Since the community was formed back in early 2007, lots of things have changed. Also since then, lots of new members have joined: we're now nearly 11,300 members. So, new members and new features means it never hurts to refresh how things work around the community.

If you haven't read it, I invite you to take a few minutes to go through our New Member Guide. If you have been a member for a while but have let a little dust accumulate on your TuDiabetes account, you will find it very useful. If you joined just recently, you will find it EVEN MORE handy.

If you don't find answers to a question you may have, never hesitate to ask. Click on the Contact Us link at the bottom of any page and one of the members of our Admin team (you can see their faces on the bottom right side of any page) will get back to you shortly.
