Hi Jamie,
  Don't feel alone.  I think alot of us are very frustrated & maybe 
discouraged that first month.  Even into the 2nd month.  My daughter Ashley 
has been on the pump for 6 months.  I think the first half of this was the 
hardest.  Into the 4th month is when I really felt comfortable with Ashley's 
pump & happy with her numbers.  We have even found better control when we 
switched from Humalog to Novolog.  In the beginning pumping is work.  But, 
well worth it.  Don't give up.  Just know that this is normal & it will get 
better with work.  I also have to tell you that finding Insulin Pumpers & 
talking with other people going through the same things I am was a great help 
to me too!!!  Thank you everyone!!!
