Unfortunately, I ain't growin' no more!!!!  :)  But I teach high school,
and YES, they're bottomless pits, aren't they!!!!!  :)

I think that's where part of the guilt feelings may come from. I
subconsciously fear that my insulin requirement may go way up to those
levels -- even though my usage has been remarkably consistent over the
whole 6 1/2 years that I've been using insulin (except that it went down
15% when I started the pump).

Well, I just gotta remember Type Weird ISN'T Type 2. 

Thanks, Michael!
