    Hi everyone! I am a 24 years old T1D from Portugal and I was wondering how many of you (age group 20-30y) have an insulin pump? The reason I am asking this question is because I have never met anyone my age here in Portugal using a pump, only children are eligible for it (inside our NHS).
    Do you enjoy the pump? How did it changed your daily life? I would really like to read your personal experience with this device, I already know about all the benefits in controlling your diabetes so you can skip that part =P Thank you all!
