Agreed!!  Many people COULD maintain tight control on shots, IF they
were willing to be slaves to the clock AND the diet. 

But quality of life is a MAJOR issue in my book -- I think we ALL
deserve the best we can get!

One of the catch-22's that I've seen quoted is that you can't get a pump
unless you can't get control any other way, BUT you can't get a pump
unless you can demonstrate that you can get good control on shots. Huh??

Makes ya wanna scream!
