My warranty on my pump expired in May and I’ve been considering my upgrade options all summer. It still works fine, but I know how critical it is to have one that is covered under warranty should something go wrong.
Anyway, after over eight years with Minimed, I’ve decided to try out a different manufacturer (Cozmo). My new pump has been shipped and will arrive next week, but I am feeling a genuine sense of guilt, believe it or not, about trading in my current pump - even though the new company offers a $500 trade-in credit. I remember feeling this way when I upgraded from a MM508 to a MM Paradigm years ago.
I’ve never been a pump-namer, but I certainly appreciate the little fella. It feels weird to let go and just mail him off to some company.
Does anyone else relate to this odd sense of attachment? I can’t help but feel a little like I’m upgrading my seeing-eye dog and mailing the old one back in a box. And I feel ridiculous for even regretting it! I’m getting a new pump and a $500 credit.
