My real name is Brian but I like how my name looks backwards so I call myself nairby. Simple huh?
I’m a Type 1 Diabetic for 20 years and am married for 11 years. I’ve been on an insulin pump now for about 16 years I guess. I don’t remember the actual day I went on one. No matter really because it has been great and I don’t think I could ever go back to shots. I have been on a CGMS since January of 2009 and loving that too.
I live in Southern California, though I was born and raised in Northern California.
Disneyland is a passion of mine. The rides, the music, all of it. M*A*S*H is another one.
So where did 1Setatatime come from?
I decided to call my blog 1setatatime (really One Set at a Time) because that is how I live my life, one infusion set at a time. You see, I have been a Type 1 Diabetic now for 20 years, which is over half my life. I can hardly remember what it is like to not be diabetic anymore. I’ve been on an insulin pump now for about 15 years I guess. I really don’t remember when I started on one exactly but I was in college at the time. I just started using a CGMS (Continuous Glocose Monitoring System) this year.
Why create a blog?
I setup this blog for me to talk about whatever suits my fancy. Mostly this will be about Diabetes, Dogs and potentially Disneyland. Who knows really but it is a start.
What will I read/see here?
Hopefully you will read about my daily struggles, accomplishments, and setbacks with Diabetes, pumping, CGMS, and life in general. I’ll put up stuff that is interesting or I may throw other items off topic now and then but that remains to be seen.
I hope you enjoy.
