I just started on this site yesterday. I was on the ADa site, but it is a real mess and there is no real advice anymore. So sad, because it was a great help to me for many years.
I am a T1 and have had it for 47 years. I have a minimed paradigm pump (I hope to get a Revel soon)and I use a CGM. My last A1C was 5.6, which I am very proud of! It used to hover around 5.1, which is way too low, so I have been trying to relax about my BGs a bit.
I have a great husband (35 years in May) who helps me so much. He is great about letting me travel alone (although it scares him, I know), and other things that he wishes I would not do, but he lets me retain my freedom.
I am glad to be here and hope we can all help each other. It is disease like no other, but it is controlable, which is all I ask.
