I just got back from my CDE’s office and after 38 years of diabetes I’m finally on a pump. It’s really quite a liberating feeling in many ways. No more worrying about carrying my insulin everywhere I go, no more declining dinner invitations while out because I didn’t bring my insulin with me. No more eating snacks before exercise because I couldn’t “turn down” my Lantus dosage. And no worries about having to give myself another injection if I see my BG start to creep up - just give myself another bolus.
I chose the OmniPod - it just seemed right for me but I can see how all pumps have definite advantages over MDI.
