My Story:
Former moderator for this community and caregiver for my mother, who has Insulin Dependent Type 2 diabetes. She uses a pump and I monitor her diet, medications, and encourage her to exercise.

My partner and I have 6 kids-three have left the nest and three still at home. Three prairie dogs, a cockatiel and my mother's shih tzu also call our house in the Chicago suburbs home.
