[IPk] To Hilly

Hi there,
I am sorry to hear about the consultant's decision, but, like you, i kind  of 
understand why.
Are you getting help with your mental health / eating disorder  problems?
I gained approximately half a stone in the first 6 months on the pump, but  
 my control was much better, and i felt so much better in myself. I must admit i
 have gained another half stone (been pumping since Feb 2006), and i am 
 finding it difficult to lose weight, but, as my blood sugars are much better,
general  health is much better - i feel so much better.
As you say, your blood sugars are 15 - 20. Isn't that making you feel  awful? 
I hope you are receiving the help you need to start to bring your blood  
 sugars down, even though this may cause some weight gain. You will feel better
yourself. At 6 stone you would probably have difficulty with the insertion of 
 the pump sets.
I wish you luck with the help you are receiving, and hope, that in 12  months 
time you will be ready for an insulin pump. I hope i have not offended  you 
with anything i have said. If i have, then i apologise.
Best wishes
