Re: [IPk] Hiding the D-Tron



It may not be ideal but on the odd occasion when I wear a dress (to a
wedding etc) and really can't find anywhere to put it I keep the pump in my
bag and attach it every hour or so (in the privacy of the toilet) and use
the scroll bolus to deliver my hourly dose all at once and any boluses for
food. I also did this by the pool on holiday although I didn't worry too
much about hiding it there, it was just more convenient for jumping in and
out of the water.

Zok
