I am looking to find other moms with insulin dependent diabetes. I wear an insulin pump and really wanted to connect with other moms who may wear one or just take MDIs (multiple daily injections).

What can I do next?

Hello R.,
I just found out that I am a diabetic. Type 2 just taking pills 2x a day. I need to lose some weight but that has been real hard for me. I did lose 40 the first month I got real sick. I have thyroid disease so I also take synthyroid. My life has changed so much now with this. I find myself more sick now then before. I have good and bad days. But I have a 10 yr old son that keeps me going. I am having a hard time keeping my diet. I also have bad acid reflux. I take nexium for that. What a wonderful pill that is. But I do have to say that God is the real reason why I am still alive. I can not complain because I feel that I could be worse off. If you want to talk just holla this way. God bless you.

Hi R. and other Diabetics

I am Type 1 now for 19 years. (booo) I have been on the Insulin Pump now for I think 3 years. I use Medtronic Minimed, Paradigm model. I love it. My doctor introduced me to the pump and I could have kissed him. It was a lifesaver. I see Dr. Greg Flippo, an Internist, I do not like Endocronogilist to well (sorry I misspelled the word) anyway, they are no fun, besides an Internist sees you for anything.

My blood sugars have been easier to control since the pump. Although I have done what I think most would do on the pump, eat the foods we were told not too while on shots, but hey we have more control now, so I don't miss a beat anymore. But I do pay the price in weight gain, although was I became diabetic, that's when I became overweight. I do plan on talking to my doctor about the LapBand procedure.

I also take Synthroid meds, for my Thryoid.
Efferox, I'm a nut case, I do have 3 young kids, 12, 8, 7. -- 2dogs, Bichon's they are just as bad the kids so stubborn, oh and a husband, hee hee. love the man. but he does fall into the catogory of the kids and dogs. hee heee.

I do not excercise, I have a darn stupid herniated disc, it hurts so much, and knee trouble.

So that's my story.
