Hello and welcome, OU!
I'm nearly 28 and diagnosed at age 9, sounds like we're in similar boats- no complications yet and need to keep it that way!
I think SP is pretty awesome, there's more information here than I ever thought one (free) website could have, and its a pretty flexible program so it works with/around most anything else you've got going on.
Good luck with your new Minimed pump, I've only ever used Minimed and while I think the pump is great, I'm not so fond of their support services. I used to actually have to call them and request a bill otherwise they'd take 8 months to bill me. They've gotten better though in the last year or so, maybe I'm just holding a grudge...
Anyway, welcome to the team and to SP!

Welcome to the team!! SP totally works, if you follow it. And the folks here are great. If you ever have any questions, just usually gets a good discussion going.

Introduce myself, eh? Let's see...
I am a type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed with diabetes just before I turned 11 and I am now 28. I've been a pump user since '96 and in that time I've had two Disetronic, one Cozmo, and a Minimed I just switched to since Cozmo is going away. I'm the proud father of two wonderful little boys and I want to be around for them for a long time to come. I don't have any complications yet and I want to keep it that way. I'm currently about 10 pounds overweight, but I'm working with a personal trainer to lose that weight and get in shape. It was actually my trainer that recommended that I join SP.
Well, I guess that's me in one paragraph or less.
