They say it takes about a full year to get used to having diabetes. I took shots for the past three years and though I got used to it and I was in good control of my BG's I never had a day I didn't wish everything went back to 'normal'. Because of some serious lows during workouts and because my grandfather (Type 1 for a looong time) said I was old fashioned using shots instead of a pump (haha) I gathered some information (well, lots of information) about all sorts of insulin pumps. And after a year or so I finally got one. And it was so weird not having to take a shot every time I had a meal! I was so used to it, it took me over a week to get in to my mind I just had to push a button!
But the main reason I got the pump in the first place was to make sports easier, and now I have one and I'm so busy with my study (I study dentistry in Amsterdam, that's next to the VUMC) I dont get to exercise as much as i'm used to! Argh, it's so frustrating!
But what's an Irishman doing in Holland? ;)

My diabetes is all right, I'm getting used to the pump after 2 months, won't ever go back to taking shots unless absolutely necessary! How are u holding up?

Hello Anthony. How are things with you this fine day? I hope well. We were supposed to get a cold front but it stalled. This has been the worse summer in memory for such prolonged heat and humidity. When I get tired too heavily busy like yesterday. I send one message to all. My BG this morning was 110. How are your readiings?> I hope in good control. And,I hope,too no more auto bombs. Take good care of yourself. I care. Reed

When you try the hospital in Hilversum you can request to get Jaqueline Putker as your 'diabetesverpleegkundige'.
Yeah, realy like the omnipod, but i switched to the pod directly from insulin shots, so I have never had experiences with other pumps. You can't put the pod back when you take it of (you have to replace it with a new pod, which you normally do every 3 days) so I never take it of while training. I practice jiu-jitsu and we train full-contact. Occasionally it comes loose, but I cover it with an extra layer of tape and was surprised that it wasn't really a problem as long as I wear it on my belly during training days. Most of the pod's that come losse during training get replaced for free by ypsomed, the company that distributes them. And the infusion doesn't bother me at all during training.
