How goes it?
I've been thinking as of late, to get rid of my pump.
I've found it to be a little...too convenient. When I was on the pen or needle and vial, I had to ask myself "Do I REALLY want those chips?" Now with the pump, before the thought even crosses my mind I've already bolused for it and on my way.
I recently got rid of my Dexcom system. It was distracting me as it would ring when I was high. I always go high after I eat, but seeing 189+ really bothered me so I started unhealthy habits like not eating breakfast or lunch or eating small to nothing for dinner which caused me to over eat at the next meal.
I'm sure someone will say it's about self control and regardless of this post, I have excellent self control, my complaint is it makes it easy. My wife is totally against my getting rid of the pump, but she doesn't understand. I've gained 15lbs since being on the pump. Weight has never been an issue, I know I could be more healthy, but I take several martial arts and while I'm a big boy, I can outrun and out last all the skinny people in class.
I guess this is more of a vent and a question to others that have been where I am. What did you do? Do you have any regrets? If you haven't been where I am, feel free to share your opinion too!
