Hi Hubert. Yes, I agree. It is a pain. Physically. I also am trying to get on a pump, but to be honest, I am "stonewalling" because it is something strange to me. I don't know why. It is hard to remember to test when I am supposed to. So I don't know my numbers like i should. And most people who don't have diabetes don't understand it. Even if a family member has it and they don't, they still don't understand. I didn't. Some family members tried to warm me about my weight and bad eating habits and lack of exercise. But they were rather hateful about it, and more interested in how I looked, more than my health. But they were right, no matter how the message was delivered. So now I am diabetic. Something I had heard about, but didn't pay attention to. I have a friend who's mother has been type 1 all her life, and my friend still cooks huge meals with carbs and sugar for her mother and serves huge portions. Her mother is blind, barely able to walk, and still my friend doesn't change her bad habits for herself or for her mom. It hurts when you go to a friends house or a family members house and they serve something that you absolutely cannot eat, so you get a salad and a glass of water. But, you know what? I have learned to take my own. And go ahead and eat the sugarfree food your family serves. At least they are trying. You might make some yourself to serve THEM so they can see that it does not have to taste bad. Good Luck. Liquorish
