I also agree.  When I first heard about insulin pumps I was having a 
lot of difficulty controlling my diabetes and my lows.  I was getting 
to the point of becoming housebound because of the many frequent lows 
that I had.  I was referred to this site from a person in a Children 
with Diabetes chat room and found a wealth of information about 
insulin pumps and it helped me make my choice on the way to 
proceed.  So many people here offer great suggestions on what to do 
in different situations.  I know this is all YMMV, but I never got 
suggestions like these at my doctor's office.  They all pretty much 
go "by the book."

I've been a regular contributor here and also a volunteer.  IP has 
been an important guide in my day to day diabetes survival.
