This is an example of the sort of things you might say about yourself: My name is Rachel Smith. I'm 27 and work for a travel agent. I've had diabetes since I was 10. I'm on Actrapid 3 times a day, and Insulatard once a day. My control is pretty good, though it could be better. I have no complications, but my doctor has suggested a pump may give me more flexibility. Oh, I'm from Manchester, and support Manchester United (!)
