Pump and the Beach?

OK so I admit it... I keep reading most of the blogs out there and never comment and never write myself. I need to change that. Everything diabetes wise is going well knock on wood. School is over for the summer thank god! Although I am taking one class.

Warm weather is upon us and I am such a beach person but this summer is different I am on the pump so I am asking for some advice for pump care at the beach. I don't want to get it all sandy and I don't really want to disconnect all day although I could just bolus every once and a while... now I am rambling but ideas would be awesome!

I kept forgetting my user name and password but I finally figured it out again! Anyway....

I was having this debate with a co-worker a few weeks ago. How do you feel about the word diabetic? I don't remember how it started but I had never really thought about it. When we were talking about it he made a good point he said we don't say that someone with cancer is a caneric (don't know if that's how you would spell it). Since then I have tried not using the word diabetic and it's hard to change what you usually say. But I have stoped using it. Just thought I would ask your opions on that because no one would know better then the bloggers :)
