Hello wonderful tudiabetes family!
This is my first blog since I signed up for this website. I don't have any experience with blogging, so suggestions are always welcome!
Two weeks ago I got the exciting news that I could get a pump, which pretty much is all I can think about since.
In my mind I think how easy my life is going to be and imagine myself pretty much cured (which of course is not the case).
On the other hand it frightens me when I think about the fact that my life depends on a small electronic device that is pumping some stuff in my body (I hope not too much).
My wife talks with me lot about it aswell, usually from her professions view (she's a pharmacy technician) and sometimes this gives us nice conversations, sometimes not...
The sometimes not part is mostly my fault and can occur because I have diabetes, although I don't want to blame my different moods on my diabetes. Anyhow, it is hard to talk about this sometimes.
For the rest our life is pretty much ruled by diabetes ( I guess that's an issue for everybody on this website :o)
so we can honestly say: diabetes rules! our life...
Well, lets talk about the frightening part of the pump.
- What if the pump runs out of battery when I'm asleep?
- What if my body can't handle the stickers?
- What if It accidentally pumps too much in my body?
- What if
I know everybody will say that this won't happen but still... It is or has been in my mind, sometimes just for a splitsecond.
There is one person coming to my rescue! The most dear person in situations like this... what about the famous diabetesnurse!?
Where would we be without them? Yes: nowhere, lost, gone. Hereby I plead for a national diabetesnurseday!
Still I am excited about me getting my pump soon!
Quit blogging (nice word) for now, get back to you all later!
