    Celebrate with me!

    I have had Type 1 diabetes for 43+ years and it has been that long since I lived a day like this. I went an entire day without a single needle entering into my body. About a year ago I started on a Contuous Glucose Monitor and then yesterday I started on an insulin pump. So now it is no finger sticks or multiple shots each day.

    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    Congratulations! No needles or finger pricks is indeed something to celebrate!

        Congratulations! There are 2 ladies at my church who also have the continuous monitoring & insulin pump. We had a previous pastor at a church we used to attend whose dau. was diagnosed with Type I when she was only 8 y.o. You must have managed well if you've been dealing with this for 43+ years.

          Congratulations, what wonderful news, my sister has had diabetes for 6 years and it is so painful to see that she depends so much on those punctures

                  Congratulations. My cousin's daughter has been on continuous monitoring and an insulin pump for years. I know you'll enjoy the freedom!
