Started this discussion. Last reply by jbowler Jul 27, 2011. 20 Replies

"what happens when my art adds to the stress? I am a working artist whose work is drying up. sigh. It's a good idea though. Maybe try to make some art just for arts sake and not for money sake. I will look into the JDRF support groups in my area."

Stress

Hi Everyone,I have been on the pump now since October and I love it. It's so easy and reliable and after having been on the Omnipod for 4 years I can't even believe I suffered for four years on that thing when I could have been on this. My concerns about the tubing were totally unjustified. sure the dog chewed through it twice but I have never ripped it out compared to 2+ times a week on the pod.My problem is that I am just not getting the numbers I need to get. I am pretty sure it isn't the…See More

"Has anyone noticed a price difference between using Minimed directly or a 3rd party vendor? Thus far it looks like my insurance uses MM, Edgepark, and Sterling but I have no idea if there is any cost difference. Anybody have insight?"

How's the new pump working for you?
At 12:28pm on October 3, 2011, monkeyloaf said…
Just wanted to let you know that I am loving my pump so far. I just started using it on Thursday and couldn't be happier. I began to feel physically better later that evening. One of my Pugs in particular, is very spazzy at times. I have had no issues with the tubing and either of my Pugs. I will be going back on the 18th to get started with my CGM. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

You're very welcome! I'm just doing my best to share experiences... I had to figure this all out the hard way. Be sure to let us know how the new pump works! When do you start it?
