Tell us about you (Short, optional bio):
I am 60 years old and have had Type 1 diabetes since age 6. I manage my diabetes well now, but did not always. I have a supportive, but sometimes over protective husband. We enjoy taking walks together and walk every day. I use an insulin pump which I love. I do not use a CGM - I have tried different ones and found them more hassle than they were worth. I use finger sticks and check my bg 5 to 9 times per day. I like to re-purpose my used diabetic supplies to create art. Well, maybe some people would not call it art. It is a bit bizarre. I embrace my weirdness.
