I have used a pump for the last 5-6 years. I injected prior to that. I have found the pump to be a simplifying addition to my management of my disease. Just one more piece to a complex puzzle...

Hi there. Wow - I'm such a neophyte in comparison! I joined the T1 club in 2007 - just shy of my 53rd birthday. You long timers are a real inspiration!

Jen,

Welcome to the club. Glad to help where I can.

Beating diabetes is a daily battle. With focus, patience and discipline you win most days. Some days the disease just hits you when you least expect it. That is ok and should be expected. The key is having good people around you and taking a mature approach in prioritizing the decisions in life we all deal with diabetic,or not.

Best,
