[IP] Why I like the pump!

Today, I splurged on a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, large order of
fries, and real Coke -- haven't done THAT in a long time!

Took 3 units to cover the Coke, and spread out the remaining 4 units
over 4 hours -- NEVER went above 160, and was back down to 108 at the
end of the 4 hours. 

I could NEVER do that on shots!!! I would have expected to rise higher,
and not be down yet, 6 hours after the meal.

Anybody who says the pump is harder than shots really hasn't tried it --
you still have to do the calculating on shots, and you still have to do
the testing -- what's the diff? However, on the pump, I don't have to
keep fishing around in my purse for my insulin pen, and I don't have to
REMEMBER to take extra shots.

And it's the not having to remember that I like the BEST -- I really AM
an airhead, and it would float away if I didn't have it securely
attached!!!!  :)
