I have a really "soft" spot for kids....Having diabetes for 33 years,I want them to know that it's ok to be scared and ok that your body doesn't always do what it "should". I love talking to kids...When I was diagnosed it wasn't talked about. My mom took care of me, and my dad still denies that I even have the disease. But I think this has made me a better person because of it. I found the pump 3 years ago, a PERFECT health care team....(THANKS BARB.B) I tell everyone I know about the pump. I have a friend whose daughter was diagnosed 2 months ago...I feel like I've been a positive influence on her....she wants a pump!!!!! AGAIN, you parents that do all of this for your kids are the best.....I only wish that I'd had the pump and glucose monitoring years ago...but hey....I've made it and I FEEL GREAT..!!!!!!! Keep up the great work.....and thanks Michael......!!!!!!! RHonda Tyo type 1,Pumping almost 3 years.....diabetes 33 years...and feeling great!!!!
