I am thinking I would like an insulin pump. I am terrible keeping on top of my diabetes, and am thinking a pump might help. Does anyone use one and what kind would you recommend?

It will only work as well as you work on keepping your BS in order.
I got the Medtronic last month and I love it.BS is right at 105 over all
And it is EZ to use
Good luck

It will be likely be more a question of if you can get one and if you can, what you can get. They are still very hard to get insurance coverage for.

From the research I've done the Animus Ping and the Insulet Omnipod seem (on paper) to give you the most user friendly and useful features. Wireless connectivity, built in glucose meters, stuff like that.
