I suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder. the pump is easy: "set it and forget it" but there are a lot of features.
would doing a pen regimen be better or worse for someone who is OCD? i'm 27, like to talk it up with girls, but hate explaining my pump to them. it seems like a turn-off when they see the tubing.
i feel like "taking a shot" is more understandable to others than wearing a machine. also, i might be more strict with my diet. the pump is good for people who enjoy food, but after having been introduced to low-carb, food just isn't that big of a deal to me.
my brother says pens are worth a try. i see an endo in august. just wondering what you guys thought.
people understand diabetes, right? i had a friend (girl) who took shots and i never saw her supplies. she tried the pump and hated it.
would i have to carry a bunch of food with me? just tell me what you guys think. i have had diabetes since 1994. pumping since 2001. tried the omni pod but didn't work in arms or thighs.
