Re: [IP] Insulin Pumps and college



Hi Laurie,
 Sorry to hear about your daughter, but also look at how lucky she is to
have a mom like you!!!
Anyway, please understand, I can be a little sarcastic and like to make
people giggle a little..........on that note, if she goes on the pump and
guys her age are scared of it or what ever, welllllllll no sexual activity
for her till its mr. Right and he truly loves her, right? lol
Now back to normal programming ;)
She has seen you using the pump correct? Let her make her own decisions
about it then I suppose, I just went on the pump 2 weeks ago, and WOW I love
it, but I think she has to figure out that it is WOW, the difference between
pumping and multi injections.
Well, that's it from me for now, Take care Laurie, and try not to worry, it
sound to me like she is dealing with it very well, and like I said she has
you for a mom!!!
