One of the reasons for me being so quiet the past few weeks is my new little sidekick....my new BFF if you will! A lot of you have asked if I had started the pump yet and the answer is YES (thanks for thinking of me btw)! I started the middle of last month and have been learning all the ins and outs of it ever since. Between being at home and teaching myself and traveling the 3 hours to my diabetes educator every week it's taken up quite a bit of my time. It's been quite a challenge but I'm getting there....figuring out and remembering all the settings, finding the perfect place to wear it not only during the day but during the night when I'm sleeping, finding the perfect, most comfortable spot to insert the infusion set...along with many other things. But as challenging as it has been it is also so, so worth it! The fact that I haven't had to take an injection by syringe in the past 3 weeks is AWESOME! 29 years of that was enough.
Thank you to all of you who have left comments and sent e-mails of concern asking about my pump. I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness!! I would love to hear from my fellow pump wearing cyber friends about your pump experiences....what you love most about it, least? And mostly where do you wear yours? When I first started the pump I was wearing it on my belt (like in the picture) but I have since moved it and clipped it on my pocket. Still not sure it's the perfect spot...seems like I'm always banging it against something and infact have scratched the face of it a few times already. Is there really any other place to wear it....maybe one I'm not thinking of!?
Have a wonderful day everyone!
