After Acid’s pump died, I decided to get my new pump out of the box that it came in a few weeks ago and I even read the instructions, but it is very similar to my old pump. I was getting nervous to change as I have been having fairly good readings, but it was time for a site change and I thought now is the time then I can mail out my old pump to MM on Tuesday.
Took awhile to put in my old settings and learn a few changes on the new pump and the insertion was a zinger (way painful), had not had that in awhile. I ate dinner and my bolus left a wet spot at the site, so I am thinking bad tubing, reservior, BAD PUMP, omg. I just did my two hour test and my bgs is 257, holy crap and my correction bolus left another wet spot (I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS). Can you believe I wait almost a month to try my new pump and this crap happens (can you tell my bgs is high). I am so pissed off with diabetes right now and feel like major crapola, eyes burning, feet on fire, throat hurts, legs hurt, bunch of crap.
Now I will be up most of the night trying to figure out what is going on and yes I did a site change as I think it was a bad site, but no blood gusher upon removal, but it was painful for hours.
