We are everywhere

16 07 2007

Last week at work, I happen to see a woman walking in front of me with a cell phone case on her side. However, I noticed some tubes sticking out and I thought, “oh wow, that’s a pump!” So, I stopped her and asked her about it. I showed her Lucy and she showed me her surprisingly tiny MiniMed. We hit it off right away. She said she always keeps sugar in her cube if I need any and that we should go to lunch sometime. It’s always such a great experience meeting another diabetic in real life. It’s even better seeing someone who is “older” (she’s had the pump for 12 years and is probably old enough to be my mom). I don’t know what it’s like to have diabetes for that long, and I’m in awe of anyone who can manage it that long and stay healthy. All you who have had diabetes longer than I’ve been alive, you inspire me. Keep on pumpin’.
