I am so happy there is an animas pump group!
I thought i was going to start insulin today. but nope, I didn’t have my logs! ARG! Well 2 hours of info thrown out at you and the log was in the back of the booklet they gave us. If they did a separate packet with logs, etc, that would’ve of helped me remember. So the DE I saw today wouldn’t start me on insulin. So I have this big (enter swear word here) binder with sheets that I am suppose to have. I have to do two different sheets till March 3rd. Yes I have to wait till march 3rd! So all of my appts are cancelled and will be delayed even more. Ugh so instead of fully being on my own on March 11th, it will be later. I have to carry this stupid binder with me. What a PITA!
I am so mad right now. I got my script for the vials yesterday so i was ready. I also didn’t do my lantus this morning as that is what my instructions were. so my sugar levels this morning was at 322 as again I was instructed not to do the lantus. So Shots till March 3rd…I can’t take the bruising anymore, etc. I was really excited to be doing the pump fully. I am really hating this disease even more. I also learned that I dont have to bolus for the entire meal. If I am not sure how much I’ll be eating, I can figure out the whole meal’s insulin rate then do half just in case I dont finish. Then do the rest after I eat. I wished I learned this from the beginning as that would’ve of saved me LOTS of lows over the years.
I just really want to just scream, swear, etc. My pumping experience far is a mix bag.
