Re: [IP] Re: publicity is not always good and Mary Tyler Moore

Hey Rodney, I like your attitude. I've had diabetes for over 14 yrs and been
pumping for almost 14 yrs. I tried to make it to D.C. but couldn't get the
info from anybody. So it was time to change docs. Got a real good one this
time. Even way out here in the middle of southern Va. In a small town even.
Alot of people don't understand that you can fight diabetes when you get on
the pump. It makes you have the upper hand on this disease. I don't have to
figure out my peak times when I want to go for a bike ride. I just turn off
and ride(Bs check before and after, of course). The pump makes life so much
easier to enjoy with this disease. For those of you out there who are
contemplating going on the pump, I urge you, DO IT. You won't regret it
years or even months down the road. Yes it is different in the beginning but
it's a new life style that you have to learn to adjust to and you will. It's
alot easier than it looks. The key is to relax and learn. Don't get mad
because it isn't working as good as you thought it would in the beginning.
It takes time and patience. It's well worth the wait for the good results.
And it doesn't take long, really.
I'll be listening to ya Rodney
Catch you on the pages later
