I would like to develop this page in the form of a "DIARY".
I invite YOU the pump starters to visit TU-DIABETES on a daily/weekly bases and create discussion as to what you may have encountered during the first days or months of your pump start. I also invite parents of children with diabetes to share there experiences.
Start your discussion with:
How did you decided to go on the pump?
How did you go about in shopping for a pump that was right for you?
What did you do when you first received your pump?
What was or is your biggest fear about starting?
Did you have class today? What did you learn? What did you review in your manuals?
How did you financially prepare for this process?
Are you feeling happy, frustrated or challange about this process today?
How did things go for you in the first week of your start?
How long do you think it will be before you will be a pro at this?
I invite you during your early months of this transition to come to this page and commment in a form of a DIARY.
NOW for our veteran pumpers: I invite you to help these indiviuals to share your experience as how you were able to get through it.
