Re: [IP] ANXIOUS



Hi,
I start my pump on the 31st too.  I got the MM508 and it came with a ton of
boxes.  I have to spend all day with my CDE for my start on it.  I have been
a diabetic fpr 12 years, but only in the last 6 months have I even tried to
control it.  It was like learning diabetis all aver again.  Hopefully your
pump will allow you even fewer sick days, although I hear starting out can
be rough.  Have a great Halloween, and good luck!
Kathy
