after two yrs. of painful waiting,an average a1c that goes up to 10.I’m finally approved.
my endos never agreed,they refused countless times before,there’s always something off,too many lows\highs,hypo unawareness,and my favourite : you don’t need one.
last week my favourite doc was there,I couldn’t sleep the night before,the first word he said was:you’re scared,and I pretty much was,he took a glance at my file and said in a matter-of-fact way that I’m not a candidate,he’s well-known for being super strict on med students,super kind to patients.so when he came closer smiling I instantly thought"that’s it,he’s gonna apologize and tell me that I’m never pumping,It took me a great effort not to cry \ :*/
But he started to joke around,commenting on my backpack-I came straight from school- ,he told me that he hated it,and pointing out to weird stuff:what’s that,what does it mean,then he suddenly asked me why I want a pump,that was the moment of truth,and you’d never imagine how nervous I was!.
I’ve prepared for that,how to convince endos to approve for a pump :-),I had an awesome clever speech that went POOF and all I said-blabbered- was that it’s easier and more comfortable.
then he nodded to the other doctor and said that he thinks it’s fine,then my father-he’s a food scientist so he’s pretty serious about the stuff-started to say how much of a sweet-tooth I am and went on for quite a time,but luckily,the doctor sided with me .
he then said that he didn’t hate my bag but that he was testing my personality(?).that’s pretty much it.they told they’s call me when the admission papers are ready>>>
-any info about that would be appreciated-.
so,you have anything you think I should know?,last minute tips?,experiences?,and oh oh!,the steps you went through like :first education,then hospitalization,then …etc.or whatever that comes up tp your mind.
