This morning was weird. As I was drawing up my last daily dose of Lantus, I felt as if I was saying good-bye to an old friend. Or maybe I should call it a partner. For the past ten years of my 38 years with Type 1, I have used Lantus. I remember the day when the Doctor said to try this new insulin. The Dr. referred to it as a injectable type of pump. A basal insulin. He explained the long acting vs. short acting and so on....... Lantus has served me well. Prior to Lantus I was 70/30 and before that was NPH. I did not like those friends so much. They were like roller coasters. Wow things have changed over the years.
A new adventure is about to start with my Diabetes. I go live with insulin with my "new friend" the insulin pump in the morning. April 27, 2010 is going to be a new day for me. Am I scared, nervous, anxious, freaking a little? You betcha I am. The same way that felt when I started with my old friend Lantus.
I realize that we sometimes need to have are old friends around us to support us. And I know that it will be as close as the Butter Compartment. Thank You Lantus for being a good friend, partner.
