Hi Dianne,
Thanks for replying to my discussion :)
I only forgot to take my Lantus a couple of times (maybe 3 or 4), but i really HATE myself when i do. Now i have an alarm sound off every day at 9:00 pm so that i don't forget to take it (and also so that i take it at the same time every night).

Right now i'm considering getting a pump, but i still haven't talked to my doctor about it. But hopefully she will accept when i do.

Take Care.
