Now that I'm off the lantus and on the pump with Novolog full-time and feeling better, I got my sense of humor back.

Hi John, great song,. I too came off the MDI and onto the pump and for me it was better control due to correcting sooner when I got it wrong, and taking insulin for those "small" snacks. I would be interested to hear from you, what exactly it was that made your experience so good that you ended up writing a song. Was it similar benefits as I experienced??

Before the pump, I was on lantus and novolog. Lantus gave me headaches and other problems. On the pump, I only need to use novolog.

That's awesome! Thanks for the smile on a boring Friday afternoon! So glad to hear that you're feeling better and the pump is working out for you! Have a great weekend!
