I just wanted to say thanks to this community for helping turn my diabetes life around.
Almost a year ago, I was way out of control, a1c >11, popping metformin but otherwise ignoring my diabetes. I was depressed, and in addition to other issues, had the "why me?" syndrome going on.
Almost a year later, I'm @6% a1c. While I had decided to take the bull by the horns, do a 180, and get this thing under control, it was TuD that educated me about pumps and CGMs, and so many other things.
Now on the omnipod and G4, I'm very happy, energetic, feel great, and most of all, am actually enjoying managing this condition to a degree. It's the geek in me -- having gadgets to play with is appealing. It's a nice side-effect that playing with them controls my diabetes :-)
So, a BIG THANKS to you all! I just hope I can play some part in helping another lost diabetic find religion, get their diabetes under control, and transform "why me?" into "I feel great!" for someone else.
