For some bizarre reason, it has taken over a year for me to be able to get back into Tudiabetes.org. Today, finally, a password reset worked, after trying probably 18-20 times before.
I’m a T2, diagnosed 33 years ago, but I’ve been on an insulin pump for nearly fifteen years now. Was doing great up until this past year, when my A1C has crept back up to 7.6 (from an average of 6.2 to 6.6 over the past 14 years.) Will need to test both my basals and bolus rates, and I have to admit I’ve been putting it off. I’m also coping with binge eating disorder, which I did not have when I was diagnosed. In fact, I was relatively thin at initial diagnosis. But a lot has happened in the past 33 years and some of the BED can be directly blamed on two years of very severe lows under difficult circumstances which caused my to start drastically overeating. Had it under control for quite a while, but have kind of lost it the past year (PTSD, I think…)
Anyway, I’m so glad to be back. Although I’ve been reading the forum posts, haven’t been able to post or reply before. Looking forward to participating again. BTW, I’m posting this under T1 and LADA because I identify more with those categories due to both being on a pump and also no longer producing any insulin at all, even though I recently tested negative for antibodies (was not tested at first diagnosis in 1984.)
