An eventful week...check it out, peeps...
Do you wear an insulin pump? Are you perhaps considering one? Do you want to meet other people who have insulin pumps? The Pump Club of Greater Philadelphia is meeting tonight at Integrated Diabetes Services in Wynnewood, PA. It's free, there are snacks & coffee, and there's going to be a discussion on continuous glucose monitoring.
I'm going to go check it out, along with my hubby. I figure I can stand to meet as many new people as possible these days. I feel a little isolated being by myself all afternoon, scouring the internet for job postings. I guess that has paid off--I have an interview on Friday.
Plus, Integrated Diabetes is Gary Scheiner's office, and as I've mentioned numerous times before, Gary is really cool, a fantastic CDE. He also happens to be the host of these meetings. As a matter of fact, I have an appointment with him tomorrow, but I am not sure how much I have to show for it. More on that after it happens.
Also, on Saturday, Divabetic is coming to Philadelphia. The event is for women wishing to "makeover their diabetes", and I tell you what, if being able to learn about better diabetes management while meeting other fabulous divas AND getting free manicures & makeovers doesn't sound like the best girly afternoon, nothing does. I am interested in going to check it out, but I don't know if I want to go alone. Also, my friend Alana (who lives in NY, almost in CT) is coming down on Saturday afternoon sometime, then we're going to a concert on Saturday night. Has anybody out there been to a Divabetic event before? Would I be there all 4 hours?
I guess my main problem is that I'd be in downtown Philly from 1-4pm, then I'd have to turn around and drive back home, most likely to get back in a car to downtown Philly for some Chinese food and a show at the Trocadero.
And I suppose the real question is: is anyone else planning on going?
