[IP] Arguments for the pump


When I got my pump I was actually in good/decent control.  I insisted on the
pump due to work.  I told the Dr. that my work schedule was not conducive to
take breaks for snacks and lunches depending on the low.  Not sure if you
are having too many lows but that is another reason (actually, I believe one
used with the insurances) to justify the pump.

I actually was firm with her and said I wanted it, period.  It is your body
and it is your life, unless your Dr. is a diabetic pumper, they cannot
understand the "freedom" that pumps give.  If you are willing to do the
work, can afford it (via insurance or self budget), then I do not see why it
should even be an issue.  

I just wish these doctors would go on injections for a month to see how they
feel about the "if it ain't broken why fix it" thing.
