It's been almost five years since I posted here. I started this blog for the Blogathon in 2005. I was blogging for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Apparently there was no Blogathon in 2010 -- they took a year off -- but there will be in 2011 and I think I'll do it again. In the meantime, I'm going to pick up this blog on type 1 diabetes and continue it. I think it provides some useful information.
The interesting thing is that the last time I posted, I had just gotten my insulin pump. My endocrinologist here in Seattle/Bellevue (he has two offices) asked me if my pump is out of warranty. I think the warranty was five years (I'll have to check) so that means I have two and a half months before my pump is five years old and out of warranty. The question is -- if my pump breaks, how will I get a new one? This one was $5000, and right now I have crappy insurance. I don't now how Medicare-based insurance (the ones the health insurance companies take over from Medicare) handle medical equipment like an insulin pump. I'll have to check.
