Re: [IP] my pump arrived!!!!



Glad it got there. I was overwhelmed with the boxes too :-) The video is
kinda boring...but just a couple of times and you will have the basics. The
needle is not nearly as bad as it looks...Freaked me out though. If you look
closely you will see the plastic cannula that will remain when you pull the
needle out. That helped my anxiety some. I took one apart before every going
to education. LOL  When is your big day?
I bought one of the waist things...works well and I didn't have to worry
about night wear with a pocket. I tried putting under my pillow, clipping
etc..but when you roll over you are confined and have to remember to take
the line with you!!! I like the waist thing.
