[IP] RE: pumping



 Hi, Laurel......
since someone mentioned my name..(BARBARA.ha) thought that I should write....so... do you have about 2 years for me to tell you the advantages of pumpimg???? I could go on and on and on.....but I won't....
First...I did the injection route for 31 years.....and let me tell you...once you get on a pump those things are HISTORY...forever as far as I'm concerned....

I know how you feel about something being "attached" to you..this was the ONE thing that stopped me...for a year it took me to decide......that was a year too long.....wish that I'd known that then.....oh well can't go back......

Now this pump is part of me....I hardly ever know that it's there...I wear it in my bra and no one knows that it's even there......it was hard at first....lots of things to learn and remember........my CDE...BARBARA...was my mainstay and still is.....it helps when there is strong support from your team...and let me tell you I have the best........I mean that..!!!!!!

anyway......my initial start-up didn't go well,but once things got straightened out....I just feel so good....and i've never felt better and my health has never been this good...I feel better than I did when I was 16...NO KIDDING....I'm 42 now.....and I can run circles aroound my kids...and anyone else for that matter.....
I read the pumping insulin, and it was hard to understand, but read it over and over and ask questions....this is the perfect place for that..!!!!  I"m no expert, I just know that the pump literally saved my life....I'm not being sarcastic....this is just facts......

just take it one day at a time...and lean on your team and know how much difference that this is going to make in your life....if you don't believe anything else ,believe this...YOU WILL FEEL SOOOOOOOO GOOD..!!!!!!!!!

you can ask Barb about this one...about weeks 2 on the pump I come down one morning and just screamed...I FEEL SO GOOD....I just couldn't believe it....
THat Euphoria that eveyone talks about....mine is still there and it's growing by the day......
write me privately if you wish.....sorry to ramble, but I'm a STRONG advocate of the pump and Kids on pumps......
you HANG IN THERE.....you'll do great.....
we all made it........the best of luck to you......
I for one am pulling for ya.....
Rhonda......
Type 1...33 years and pumping for 2.......and wouldn't trade my pump for a million dollars....!!!!!!!!!!!
