Re: [IPk] A PUMP BREAK



Vicki

I have been pumping since Sept 05, and still struggling. I am having to go 
back to basics !
BUT I KNOW how you feel. I felt like flushing my pump down the toilet last 
week....

But I can't do that :(
Is it the pump that's getting you down or the Diabetes ?

For me its the D...can't flush that down the loo - wish I could !

Chin up
