How are you, have you been skiing yet this season?
We went to Willamette Pass last week and had a blast. I'm debating getting a helmet. I'm not a very risk-taking skiier, but I do like to go fast, and all those other folks on the mountain make me tempted.
Kelly, your profile is inspiring. I've had diabetes for 11 years, and I've been on a pump for about 8. I never really got active in diabetes awareness groups, except for once in 2002 when I served as an advocate. I would love to get more involved. I am a writer, having had 7 books published. Do you think there is a role for me in the organization of which you're a part?
yeah it's certainly been a strange few weeks, especially as I switched from the original 2 shots a day to 4+ shots a day after only 5 days... I HATED the eating every 2 and a half hours thing. I had to eat in class and everything so I'm a lot happier now I can eat whenever I like.
so do you use shots as well as a pump? is there a particular reason for that?
