Okay, so I have been reading countless blogs about diabetes for the past two days and I have finally talked myself into starting one. I think these other blogs have helped me to cope with the fact that I have (and have had for a while) a disease that is not going to go away. So here goes...
I am 22 years old, almost 23, and I have Type 1 diabetes. Damn the luck huh? I usually do pretty well with the whole thing, but some days I just want to scream, or cry, which is what I usually do.
I am a pumper. I love my Medtronic Minimed Paradigm 515. I just went on the pump last year and so far I have loved every minute of it. So far. I just graduated college last year and got married after graduation. I know 22 is young to get married, but I already have a college degree and I needed medical insurance (if you have type 1 diabetes you can feel me on this one). I am just kidding about getting married for the medical insurance. I married a wonderful guy, Joey, who I met my first semester of college.
I guess I will start out slow on the blog thing, but I am sure once I get the hang of it I will be addicted.
