[IP] To those who feel the need to hide the pump...
Well, Jim all I can say to that
Maybe its in HOW you word your
I just think we are all
here to HELP each other. Its funny I never get mad at any post. I read it and
learn from it.
I have never found ANY reason to hide my pump,YET!
Maybe the day I get married a
bright Teal pump in a black case on a white dress MIGHT look odd to some, but
I'm sure my D friends wont even notice, *Grin*
I just love the pump SOOO much I
almost want to take it off and show everyone as they pass me, even if they DON'T
care, I WANT them too. *Giggle*

[IP] To those who feel the need to hide the pump
In my previous message
in no way did I intend to judge "pump hiding".
We all find our own emotional
comfort level in dealing with diabetes.
It's real easy (for me) to not
post my feelings of DM not going the way
I want - frustration, anger, fear,
&&&& - when I get (well-meaning)
responses to a comment that
I'm frustrated (or ?). The comments tend
(I'm generalizing) to be how
to fix a problem instead of exploring the
feeling.... I think
that we all tend to have similar feelings come and
go, related to
diabetes. If I don't hear that someone else has been in
place, it's very easy to think "I'm the only one"...
At times I find it
very difficult to hear people say you can't ______
unless ______ (fill in
your own blanks) when I already "have" and I
I need to be
careful of my "if ____, then____"s because reality will
never come close to
