So yesterday morning I was working out and my infusion set literally fell off. Granted I was sweating a lot - but that usually doesn't happen. So I put on a new one and felt a twitch of pain when the needle went in - not unusual, so I didn't think much of it. 2 hours later my insulin pump tells me it can't deliver insulin. I checked for kinks and did the usual and finally determined it was the new site. Frustrated - I ripped it off (wasn't working anyway) and I've been back on shots ever since.
I have a bottle of Lantus in the fridge just in case the pump stops working or in this case - I got mad at it :). I kinda like the freedom of not having anything permanently attached to me, but I don't like the shots all the time. I also miss the opportunity to have a small correction dose when needed.
I love the pump but the infusion sites can be a pain sometimes. Anyone else take a break from pump for a couple days?
