Well-controlled Type 1's - what kind of jobs do you have?
I've had Type 1 for 25 years, and for the first 15 of those years I had various sales-oriented jobs that were rewarding but very stressful. I finally made the tough decision to change jobs and I now work as an administrative assistant/office manager. The pay isn't much and I'm open to a 2nd career. So I'm wondering what kinds of jobs Type 1's have enjoyed that still allowed them the flexibility and stability to keep their BG's under tight control. I've pumped for 6 years, I'm on the CGMS, and my A1C is 6.5.

Nearly any career is appropriate for a person with type one diabetes. I'm a nurse and also attend grad school and have excellent control.
