Re: [IPk] RE: Zoe's dilema



Yes Melissa I do use the shortest length and it depends what I'm wearing
whether or not I have this problem. In the summer with smaller clothes and
all that it tends to hang out a lot more.  I've just spent the last three
weeks in a bikini which somewhat intensified the situation!

Just a thought, but does anyone ever take a break from the pump  (I mean a
couple of weeks when they might go on holiday) and go back to injecting?  I
know it's not recommended by Disetronic but we can take things into our own
hands.
