Default long time listener, first time caller

Hi all, I've been diabetic for a while (diagnosed in 2001), been on an insulin pump since 2004, fighting the daily struggle. But the good news is, I am still above ground, still counting carbs and getting fussed at by my endo about my A1C. I am from Central Alabama, I am 44 years old, married, and glad to be here.
