Has anyone ever had someone be super unsupportive of your choice to pump? I was at dinner the other night with my mom and I broke out my pump to bolus. No one noticed it, but she did and said "I just don't get you. It's just so much of a hassle to live with that thing. I just don't understand why you can't do pills and shots." When I bring up my pump, she gets all distant and nasty with me, like it's an annoyance to her. Even when I break it out at meals to do a quick bolus, she gets agitated. I just don't get it.
I've explained to her MULTIPLE times that all of the orals make me sick. I've failed all of them. I was sick of shots and don't always have time to cover for meals. This pump is, at least for me, a lifesaver.
I just don't get it. Does anyone else have the same thing and if so, what do you do, besides ignore them?
