I can't help you with the dating angle as I stopped dating 23 years ago
when I met my wife. I can tell you that the only concern she had was the
clicking on delivery of the basal rate shots at night. (I am told that the
new MiniMed pump entering the market next year will not have the
clicking.) She got used to that and does not mention it anymore.

Normal...Oh, you mean normal blood sugars! I was wondering what incredible
device I have gotten myself which will bestow the curse of being nORMAL on
me :-) ;-)
When are you scheduled to start?
It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken.
