I am from Columbia, S.C. and I don't think that I can apply for Medicaid because I don't have dependent children and I was told that I don't qualify for Medicare. Does anyone know how to apply for Medicare?

Ive been on Lantis and Humalog shots for 18 years. Because of getting pregnant, I will be getting on the pump in mid-April as well. Im very anxious and cant wait to get my bloodsugars under control so I will feel better everyday! My bloodsugars now run in the 200's up to 500! It makes me feel tired, thirsty, lazy, weak, and like I gotta pee ALL the time! lol. Ive heard nothing but good things aboutthe pump. I hear it makes people feel better with the tighter control and the they also dont have to take so many shots a day. Instead, you just have to change your patch/needle on the pump every 3 days :)
