Hi all!

I've been a type 1 since 1991, have used a pump since 2000. I don't have any complications as of yet. My goal is to make it to 20 years without any! Lately I've found that my numbers are not where I want them to be, though. My HgbA1cs have risen to the 8's, and I'm really struggling right now. Last year I started swimming, and have lost 20 pounds after starting to use Symlin in conjunction with my insulin. But I am still struggling more than I ever have! I wish there were such a thing as a vacation from the BIG D. Haha! Hmmm. I've never really participated in any support-type groups before, but I hope to have a positive experience with this one.
