I have another commitment that night but it looks like it might get cancelled. So it's still up in the air right now. If it does get cancelled I will be there. Only problem is, I dont cook so I dont know what to bring.
Andy, I have plans to be there tomorrow. Lynda will be speakig to my group in Jan. I have CGMS reps coming for Nov & Dec. Come and say hi tomorrow. I'm easy to find...I'll be the one in the elec scooter.
I really like it a lot, I have been on the pump for a little over a year and everything is going well. There have been some things here and there that have happened, but nothing that couldn't be fixed quickly and nothing that the company wasn't helpful with and replaced at their cost. My blood sugars are like a normal persons with the pump because it's so easy to keep track of everything. I do have highs and lows but I think that will happen no matter what I do. It was a huge sock to all of us when I was diagnosed 2 years ago. No one in my family has Diabetes of any kind and defiantly not Type 1. So it has been not just a big adjustment for me but for my whole family. But I am fine with it and I just see it as one of those things that happens. At least it is not something worse that I can't take care of. How do you like your pump?
Thx for the welcome...I also joined the group Inked diabetics... And thx for the info on frio wallets...learn something new evryday...i am so glad i found this site . it makes me feel good that im not going thru this alone...
My son is on the OmniPod now with the MM Guargiand CGM. My sister uses a MM (can't remember which model) and we would definitely use pe of their pumps. I would have used them this time, but we like the Pod being tubeless. I hear the MM is coming out with a tubless model next year with CGM built in, and we will definitely have an eye out for it. How do you like yours?
Hey Andy, good to hear form you. I will keep your number with me and try to give you a call. My daughter is in and we have a busy weekend. She is going to the Phillipines this summer for two months and we are trying to get things in order. It is a lot to think about trying to make sure all her medical supplies for her diabetes are in order and getting all the simmunizations she needs. If I miss you maybe we can catch each other some other time. Thanks for the invite.
Heya - I do understand where you are coming from - and I do appreciate your support, I really do. It's only every so often that I have bouts of self-sympathy - and I usually cover them up. I'm back to being semi-vibrant now, if you jbiw what I mean. Your advice is good - keep positive!
Ho Andy - thanks for the encouragement, I don't usually open up that much, but sometimes the frustration causes a massive 'dummy spit'! For example - imagine trying to put your undies on. Probably for you, it's a breeze - feet through the legholes and pull 'em up. But for someone with beuropathy, no such luck. You can't feel or wiggle your toes. Your little toe will hook on the leg hole. Now that maybe a bit funny for the first few times. but after a dozen tries, there will be anger and you'd swear that the toe and the garment are magnetically attracted. My usual reaction is to apply as much force as I can which usually rips the garment in half And that's just to get your undies on! You then have socks and shoes etc And keep smiling all the while? I try - but sometimes I fail.
