I'm 20 years old and I have been dealing with diabetes since I was around 12-13 years old. I'm not a new face to some of you, but I do have a new user name just to confuse everyone.
My name is Jess. and I'm a pumper( LOVE my pump)
I'm studying to become a teachers assistant. I have the cutest cat in the world and there are very few things that I can't do....

Hi Jess. I'm new. A thousand years older than you, with kids about your age. :D

Hi, Jess! I am more than twice your age, have elementary age kids, and slow-onset Type 1 of adulthood.

I also have six indoor cats!

Okay Jess - I have grandchildren older than you! :D In fact, our mod Joshua says I'm his cyber-granny too - he's just slightly older than you & only diagnosed last year, but has already been turned down for a pump. :(

It's great to see you & I hope you'll be coming around often. Got any pix of that cute kittycat? ;)

Jess, that is a wonderful attitude!! You will go far, and your diabetes will not hold you back. I envision you being a fantastic teacher. I was a math teacher for 34 years.

I have a friend named Jess in Canada. You haven't said where you live. Is that you, in Nova Scotia?
