Wanna know more about Bee?

Then you've come to the right page!

So, a little history for you about me without going back through every single post I've ever written:

My name is Bethany, but I usually go by "Bee." I'm a spunky 5 foot tall brunette. My husband is 6 foot 2.

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 14 years old.

When I was diagnosed there wasn't much of a "Diabetes Online Community." I spent hours pouring over the Children With Diabetes website. I started emailing other kids my age with Diabetes and had a lot of "pen pals" for awhile.

Most of my teen years I battled an eating disorder that, at the time, didn't have a name but now is becoming more recognized as "Diabulimia." I would purposefully not take my insulin to drive my blood sugars up which would then cause my body to break down fat and anything else it could - I wound up in the hospital more times than a person should. I didn't stop there, though, I combined that with Anorexia and Bulimia. Yep, I was one of those "problem teenagers" that I pray every day my daughter will not be.

Amidst all that I met my Husband. He helped me through it all. We've been through thick and thin and thick again.

We found out I was pregnant with twins just a couple months after we got married in 2007. We found out shortly after that I miscarried. A few months later we found out that I was once again (apparently The Pill doesn't work on me!!!!) pregnant. Nine grueling (but worth it!) months later we have my adorable daughter! She'll be two in December and I can't believe that almost 2 years had gone by SO quickly!

My husband and I are both total geeks. He's a PC guy and I'm a Mac person.

He's going back to school right now to finish up his programming degree. We're living with his parents so we can afford for him to go back to school. I do photography in my spare time for some extra cash on the side.

I currently use an Animas Insulin Pump, and love it.

There you have it, the run down on Bee
