So my softball season ened yesterday, Im kind of happy actually. Our team wasnt all that good and the coaches werent the best. Overall it just wasnt as much fun as it used to be.
I dont think ive ever had any real problems with diabetes and sports. Ive played Softball, Cross Country, and Track since being diagnosed. During XC what i would do is eat, and not cover for 45 carbs of my meal. For track and softball i had my pump, and the only time in track i had been low during a meet was right before the 1800m and i caught it in the high 60’s. I didnt run for that event, but i ran for my 800m.
And with my pump and softball, i usually kept it on, because for some reason i dont like taking off my pump unless i have to.
Sometimes my pump would fall off the huge waistband of my softball pants, and it would just flop off, depending on were i had it. So yesterday, I was up to bat, and my teammates (who always witnessed me screaming “AHH!” when my pump fell and tugged on my site) asked me if i should have my pump on while i was batting, and i told them i would be careful. So i struck out, but after i swung, my pump fell off as usual, and actually ripped out my infusion site. I laughed it off with a CRAP!
I have lots of funny storys with my pump, for some reason. xD
