So for those who have switched from shots to pumps or have always been on pump treatment; i have question(s) for ya- how was your experience from the switch over, would you ever go back to shots and has the pump impacted your life in a positive way?
I have had type one now for 5 years and when i was firstly diagnosed i was offered the pump but being a image contentious teen i didnt like the idea of being attached to a device through out the day. Now that i am older i can see all the benefits of the pump, the main one the more stable control over blood sugars.
One of my main problems with my diabetes is that i am not taking my shots at all!! This is out of pure lazyness, the time consuming aspect and other daily disturbances which happen throughout my week whether its college, work, or meeting friends or heading out!! A different type of treatment (such as the pump) may help me live a healthier life!! which is what i need because at this stage i feel like im just waiting until i go into a coma or something more serious.
So please offer me any advice or info on the switch over from shots to pump or even if you feel like i would be better off sticking to shots and just trying harder or what ever.Any suggestions are welcome !!
Thanks guys for your input. x
