[IP] Not all pump starts are smooth (a

The same thing happened to me when I started the pump.
My A1c's were low 8s for the six months prior, but
anytime I hit 100s and stayed my hands shook and I
became light headed. This response also didn't put me
in the best of moods. The CDE said this would only
last a week. Guess what? It last for 3 1/2 weeks. The
CDE suggested feeding it, but I decided not because
who wants to prolong misery. 

I also had problems finding a comfortable place to
wear the pump. These challenges seemed like a real
pain at the time, but now with A1c's in the low to
middle 6s it was definitely worth the effort. No
regrets here.
