I have been on a pump for 16 years, since I was 13 years old and was at my endo today and she recommended a pump vacation. Well, she recommended I try MDI - as it wasn't available when I went on a pump all those years ago. I will be travelling to Europe for 6 weeks in September, and offered the suggestion that I do injections on my trip instead of using my insulin pump.
My first thought was - Are you crazy? I did take the prescription and the lovely new pens she offered.
I have been doing some research on the topic, and find varying responses to the idea. Right now the idea makes me a bit sick to my stomach, I honestly have never taken my pump off for more then a couple hours in 16 years.
Anyone have any tips, tricks, or comments to make this anxiety about going off my pump any easier?
