Re: [IP] stopping exercise b4 starting on the pump...

Anna, I think it is normal to feel anxious about starting pumping or any new
thing. I thought of millions of "what if's" causing myself a lot of worry.
When I began pumping, it so happened to be spring break for the public
schools and arranged for my daughter to be here to know "all could happen".
In introspect, I probably caused a lot of worry but I doubt it - because she
continued "being a kid", so I knew the worry was all mine.
Pumping is a whole different "game" than MDI, I have learned to let a lot
slide and another set of things to keep in perspective for the day or
whatever comes up next. I certainly know that pumping is a whole lot easier
than MDI. Happy pumping! Sharon B.
Now a Paradigm (AKA Gumby, Jr.) pumper as of 12:30 PM EST and doing OK
