Trial Run

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.

Welcome to the OC, Nikki!

I really need to update my blogroll, but if it's ok, I'll put you in mine, too.

Welcome to the O.C.! I've found it to be really helpful for me to write about things, getting them off my chest, but also the great comments that people share. It's the best.

Hi Nikki,

I'm a parent to a boy with diabetes.

Incidentally, I met my husband when I was 20 and I married him at 24...we celebrated our 10th anniversary last September, so I don't think you married too young :)
