Hello!! My name is Eva.  I have Type one diabetes.  I was diagnosed when I was 8 . I am now 14. I am using an Animas pump and I am able to participate in most sports (Volleyball, Basketball and Track).  I wanted to start a thread here because I want to become a Pediatric Endocrinologist.  I think it is a good idea for teens with diabetes to have a place to "go" to talk, vent , gripe, or just express sucess in pumping and with diabetes in general.  I also have two other brothers that have diabetes and are on pumps ( though we are all on different brands) So, I plan on checking this site very often. If you have any ideas please post! School is coming up, how do you all handle everything?  It will be good to get to know everyone.  But first you have to post!!!!  TTYL-Eva

Hi Eva! My name is Kristen and I've been a type 1 diabetic since I was 11 (I'm now 40!).  I've been through it all as a diabetic...high school, college, relationships, jobs, marriage and most recently pregnancy and motherhood (I have a 1 yr. old baby boy).  If there's ever any questions you have, or you need any advice or just want to talk about how to deal with something, feel free to ask.  During my 28+ years as a diabetic I've never known another diabetic or had anyone to compare notes with and I always thought it would be nice to have someone to commiserate with.  So now it's my turn to help out someone else who might be going through the same things that I already went through. - Kristen

From the thread Being a pregnant Type 1 diabetic isn't easy, but it's rewarding in the Pregnancy forum:

Last year, at age 39, I gave birth to my only child.  I've been a type 1 diabetic for 28 years and, by far, this was the most grueling, yet rewarding, thing I've ever done.  Being pregnant is hard enough for a regular person, but when you throw diabetes into the mix, it becomes that much harder.  If there's anyone that's pregnant, or thinking about getting pregnant, feel free to ask me anything, as I probably experienced it at some point during the pregnancy.
