I am new here. I am very happy to find you. I have been all over the net looking for a site that has real people with problems with diabetes. All the other sites I have been on have people who “YELL” at me because I am diabetic and I can’t seem to get my stuff under control.
Anyways, my name is Sarah, I have been diabetic for about 14 years. I hate it. I have never really took care of myself. I do know the problems that it will cause me in the long. I have tried many times to get myself under control but I just could not. I have also noticed some of the wonderful side effects of long term diabetes.
So my next step is… I am getting my pump on this week. I have been thinking about getting a pump for years. I have a sister who also diabetic who is a pumper. I am really excited I do think this will be what will help me get this awful disease under control.
Don’t get me wrong I have had periods of my life when I was under control. For instance I have had two wonderful pregrancency. Which I have two beatiful little girls.
What I hope to get out this community is friendships with people who understand and know first hand what I am going though.
