Since I last posted.. I took a break from everything diabetes-related on the internet for a while. I was getting way overwhelmed, and to be perfectly honest, I was burnt out. That being said, I slipped up on my D care for a while- I just didn't want to deal with it. It was the first time that I really resented diabetes to a point that it affected the way I dealt with it (just not testing enough, and forgetting to bolus here and there) I'm not proud of it, but I'm only human. I'm back on track now, and my blood sugars have been amazing, despite some bad pod issues a few weeks back. I was using 80+ units a day, and seeing HI's and 300's way too often. My endo decided that for my safety, that I should stop the use of the pods. I was the 5th patient in a month that he took off of it. Since then, my insulin needs have went back to normal (for me, about 40-50 units a day) and my average bg for 7 days is 117, my 14 day average is 134, 30 day is 155. Other than the D stuff, I transferred to the school of my dreams- one of the top research universities! I love it, a lot, though it is a lot harder than my previous college in terms of workload and difficulty of courses. But all that aside, I love the challenge, and the opportunities that are given there. I have changed my career path though. I wanted to be a pedi endo for a long while, but I've decided to go the medical research route instead. I want to research drugs used to treat diabetes, help be a part of that cure we are all longing for. So I hope to one day work for a drug company and do just that! I'm going to try to get an internship with J&J, whose headquarters is basically down the road from one of the campuses at my school, but they're one of the hardest companies to get an internship with, so we'll see about that! But yeah, that's where I've been and what's been going on with me. How is everyone else doing?
