Pump supplies and insulin don't grow on trees


#1

I changed my set and reservoir this morning. Managed to trash both a set and reservoir before I got it right. Pulled the plunger clear out of the reservoir during the initial 2 pump set up. Then I accidentally pulled on the set tubing a little too hard and pulled the whole sucker off of the needle/Inset inserter.

Also, I've been throwing away around 50-80 units of unused insulin with each set change.

The tweaking and learning is fun, but it's getting pretty wasteful. For a poor conservationist, this has to change...

Hang in there…it will become second nature, just like brushing your teeth! I think I can do it blindfolded now:)
