Boy was the first week hectic. I had trouble with the infusion sets. I ran out of the samples! I had one pull out and I knew it pulled out as it leaked. I MUST remember when your pants are down that you remember your pump is in your pocket as it will tug the infusion site (you have no idea how many times this happened and I forgot I was on a pump). My infusion sets arrived today but my mom decided to be non-compliant today that I dont have them! I have a sample of the inset I can use for tomorrow morning but then I really need to get my sets.
So I am not use to using the pump yet but I know I’ll get the hang of it. I have done well sleeping with it! Going to order the dressing as the infusion set does peel off easily. I bought another type of tape and it stays on well only if I use a lot of it.
Tomorrow I go live on Insulin! Got my rx filled :)…I am nervous. I am glad that this morning was my last morning on Lantus. No more bruising! And no more shots as of tomorrow (unless something happens to the pump or I need a vacation).
So this is all for now I wanted to share with you guys :)…Just happy to be on the pump and can’t wait to feel better and will be happy to go out to dinner with friends and not have to get up to give shots in the bathroom!
