Greg and Natlie:

I'm just 40, have had diabetes 38 years and been pumping almost 20!

I remember as a young kid having to sterilize needles by boiling them (we used 
'em for a week before they went to the circular file).  I don't remember how 
they were but I remember relief when the throw-aways came out.

I remember clinitest well.  We even had songs about it (First you feel rocky, 
then you feel shocky.  That's the way it goes with the sugar blues)

I remember the first glucose testing: metal lancets and read via the eyes!!

Boy you kids.......

(And I know there are older than me on this list as well....)
