Hey I'm the barefoot Duchess, I live in Davenport, IA. And currently I am a Logistic coordinator.
I am a type 1 Diabetic diagnosed in August 2009 at the age of 52! Thanks Mom. My mother was a type 1 diabetic diagnosed at the age of 27.
I am currently getting ready to start an insulin pump. So I needed to start a journal and record what I eat. That is how I found this site. I am having a hard time keeping my blood sugar at a decent level with only injections, so I have opted to go on the pump. I just met with my pump advisor on Saturday (6/1/13)for the first time, was surprised that she is also a diabetic with a pump. WOOHOO! someone that knows what I'm going through.
I have gained 50 lbs in the last year, mainly I think because I was off work, depressed, didn't exercise and ATE. So now I am having a hard time losing all this weight I gained and my age is not helping.
So that's about my story for now.
