Does anyone else have struggles getting their supplies? Costs? Delivery? That person on the other end of the help line? Isn’t it enough that we have to deal with managing all the problems having diabetes itself but now we need to juggle through all the insurance redtap...

I was so excited about finally getting to the point where I was able to no longer talk about it but just run. Just to do this thing. This crazy thing. Seven marathons in seven days. I must be out of my mind. I just wanted to do something that was completely out of the...
