Who is Stuck On Insulin?
My name is Sarah. I am a southern girl with T1 diabetes. I was diagnosed at 4, the November after my birthday. I was on shot therapy from age 4 until 16, then I started on insulin pumps. My first one was a Disetronic H-Tron +, then I upgraded to the Spirit pump, but I didn’t like it very much. December 19, 2008, I started on the OmniPod pump. So far, I love my OmniPod and I hope it continues to work as well for me as it has. Most of the time, my a1c’s were always in the high 9’s, low 10’s, but since I started on the OmniPod in December of 2008, I’ve seen much lower A1c’s.
Other than a diabetic, I am an insurance agent in my “day job”, but my passion is photography. I’ve always loved taking pictures, but I’m really getting into the “science” behind it and am really considering taking a few courses. I don’t want to go professional, but I’m starting out with just landscape pictures and trying to do some family photos as well.
I have been married for a little over a year, and have two cats for now. We are talking about having kids in the future, but not until my A1c is at or below 6 for a few tests, or at least a year. But even if we do get pregnant before then, I have an excellent endo that I’m sure can help me get through the pregnancy okay.
So, now that you know a little about me, I hope that you enjoy reading my blogs a little more.
