Re: [IP] bad night

This is exactly why I am so happy and relieved with the pump,  I have not
had a major reaction since being on the pump.  I have not felt allot of
these things that people are talking about in more than 6 months.  I don't
miss trying to drink OJ or sugar water, waking up to jelly in your mouth,
being sick from getting a shot of Glucagon or falling down the stairs
because your right side does not want to listen to you.  I do have to say
that I don't feel reactions the way I use to with the reg and NPH put still
not having the reactions is wonderful.  I am sorry to say I was surprised
that we still can have the reaction even though being on the pump.

I have binged many times because of a low BG and I have felt terrible after
but I  have always been happy to feel terrible after (considering the other
side of the coin).  Since going on the pump I keep Dex tabs with me all the
time and have started a habit similar to Kathy.  They are easier to count
the carbs and to bolus for.  It seems to work.
