Animas-finding my inner D-self

I am truly excited to meet with the local Animas rep tomorrow night, as I think I am finally ready to get a pump! I am going to be 30 years old and feel it is time (with upcoming real life plans of marriage, babies, etc.)

I was curious why the word, Animas has stuck with me in my meanderings of pump research. So, I looked it up online.

anima an·i·ma (ān'ə-mə)

  1. The inner self of an individual; the soul.

  2. In Jungian psychology, the unconscious or true inner self of an individual, as opposed to the persona, or outer aspect of the personality.

  3. In Jungian psychology, the feminine inner personality as present in the unconscious of the male. url = {},

Maybe I liked it because getting a pump seems to put diabetes a little bit back inside of me, instead of being so obvious with diabetic accoutrements, crazy, scary lows and annoying highs.
