Re: [IP] Eye trouble



I am writing to you because I see you are the same age as my daughter,
Jaime, who got her pump last week.  Since she graduated from college, she
has let her diabetes go.  I know she felt that the pump would be a good
thing.  But even though it has been less than a week, she already has
negative thoughts about the pump.  Part of the reason I think is because she
is being forced to check her BG's more often and it's pretty hard to run
away from your diabetes with a pump attached to your belly!  She is
concerned about her social life, she is single and lives alone.  Says she
feels like a freak.  is there anything you can say to me (or her) that would
encourage her to continue with the pump.  I am afraid she won't give it a
chance.  How do your friends react to the pump?  Jaime has been a diabetic
for over 20 years.  Are you gettin used to your pump after 3 months.
Anything you can share will be appreciated.  Thanks, Susan (Jaime's Mom)
