    This is a really good video with Kris Freeman. He talks about type 1 diabetes and competing in the Olympics. And hes just such a cutie!:D

    Kris says, and I quote, " Id really like to stress especially to the young people that theres really no limits to what you can do with this disease. Its a completely manageable disease. I wont lie it can be very frustrating at times, but its totally manageable and you should never stop something that your dreaming about because you have diabetes its totally unnecessary. You can do it with this disease."

    What a great video! He explained everything so well. Anyone that doesn't know about Type 1 Diabetes could learn so much from it.

    And yes, he is cute! ;)

    Did you notice that he totally licked his bloody finger after he tested? :D The didn't show it but you could tell, and you could kind of hear it to.

    Thank you Becky! We were just talking about him at dinner tonight. I wonder why he doesnt use his Omnipod PDM to test his blood? I was surprised to see he used a separate meter. Im posting the video on my Facebook page!
