Not Sure If I'm Liking the Pump


#1

I’ve been hooked up for awhile now, but I’m not sure I like the pump. I haven’t noticed any better numbers (some days I’ve had worse numbers that usual) or any improvements in how I feel. I am beginning to think that a pump may be just a way for companies to make even more money off of diabetics. Which makes me feel less like using it. I feel like I’m doing almost the same thing as I was doing prior to going on the pump, which was: monitoring like crazy and hunting down/cutting off any highs. The only difference is that now I have to worry about carrying around a machine and I worry about the machine not functioning properly. Sure, I don’t have to do shots on a regular basis, but I didn’t mind the shots that much anyhow. I think I’m not sold on the pump. Did anyone else go through this? Or am I the only one who hasn’t shown improvement on the pump? I feel like my diabetes has gotten worse.
