    Hey Everyone,

    I just turned 20, so I figured that I'd post in the Teen section instead of the adult one.

    I am a Junior in college, majoring in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Physiology. I love riding motorcycles and meeting new people. Im on several motorcycle forums but never thought of joining a diabetic forum. This could be helpful for me because I do not know any other people who have diabetes!

    I am on the pump, have been for 5 years now. I've had a few of them break on me but for the most part I really like the pump. Every now and then I switch back to injections to give my pump sites a break.

    Anyways I just wanted to introduce myself quick and hopefully I'll be able to help with any questions people have.

    --Jim

    Welcome to CWD.

    Nice to see someone from Wisconsin. I grew up outside of Milwaukee.

    Hi, welcome to CWD :)
    I am Kiersten, a sophmore in college, 19 yrs old. I have diabetes for almost 5 years. I also pump (minimed 522), but I am currently on a break from my pump. Once again, welcome to CWD!

    When I went to order supplies for my pump (at the end of the year, so my supply was gone) my endo told me I had to find a new endo (I hadn't been in to see him in a while because of being away at school) and would not order my supplies, so until I can find a new endo I am on shots.
