Any type 1's out there who have an insulin pump, maybe you could tell me about your experiences with them? My dr is trying to get my insurance to cover one for me and I know that there's going to be a lot to learn, so maybe getting a few people to tell me about how their experiences have been could help a little. I am still rather new to diabetes, I was diagnosed around 18 months ago and have struggled with a lot of roller coaster highs and lows, none of which I can feel at all which is the reason for the pump. I have done a bunch of reading about them, but I think personal stories help a lot more than just info. I would appreciate any help that you give me if you have the time to help. It's a little intimidating to me to say the least. i look forward to some parts of it, but some of it scares me to death.
