I am getting my insulin pump this week. I'm really excited about it too. I am getting a blue one. My 10 year old grand daughter named it after a pokemon creature, it will be called Ditto.

Howdy Mya! WELCOME to DiabeticConnect!

Do you have a question or concern or is it that you just want to talk? I think that I work better with a well defined question or concern. My 1st wife (now ex) tried to get me to talk to her with "What ya thinkin" but if she asked a question of me I was better able to talk to her. Unfortunately that is the way my ADHD brain works.

If 89 = the year of your birth, my youngest son, "AJ" was born to me and 1st wife in 3/89 (he is the only one of my 3 sons who is not yet married)

Blessings to you and yours

I know right? My hubby hates when I answer "nothin". It's hard for him to believe that that could be the case. His mind is always in overdrive about one thing or another. I'm constantly telling him to take a break and get out of his own head for a moment.

Usually when my ex asked it my mind was in hyperdrive (due to my ADHD — which was not officially Diagnosed {Dx'd} at that time) and that question brought my mind to a SCREECHING halt, almost like a train wreck, and I wondered what piece of my hyper thoughts I could share with her. I used to be able to get away with a semi-humorous comment: "Mulligan stew" (saying I was "mulling over" a lot of things) but I had been using that out so long (we were together almost 30 yrs) that it was no longer good enough for her. So my brain siezed up, knowing if I said the wrong thing, she'd be all over me "like white on rice". So I said to her "nothing" or "I am sorting something out". STILL not good enough for her.
