"I too can relate. I was on the pump and CGM for almost 2 years and in the beginning it was great- gave me more consistency and independence but then my IR started to worsen and things slowly degraded. My sites would get infected or not absorb…"

"It seems that way for me... I'm following every rule and then something comes up (dramatic event, work stress, ...) and I slip a bit. Then a bit more and I'm so busy coping with life, that the diabetes care falls by the wayside. And I…"

"So far (it's been 6 months) my control without the pump is better than it was with. In the beginning I was doing great. But after 10 years, the scar tissue in all the areas ok for the pump made the absorption inconsistent. It also doesn't…"

Steve D replied to daricel's discussion 'Thinking of dropping the pump and going back to shots. Has anyone done this?' in the group Diabetes Burn Out
"Daricel- I did. Quit the pump (Omnipod) completely. Was back on MDI for two months. It was Hell. I was so out of control and had a maddening Insulin reaction just last week. Went right back to the pump, and will never do that again!"

"I just recently made the jump from my pump back to shots. So far, it has been a struggle to be honest, but it has been the sort of "break" I was needing. It is hard to be on the shots, having to worry about them constantly. I feel I lost a…"

"Hi Eric, as you can see you aren't alone... With some support from others here's hoping you can get back on track. I have really good weeks and no so good days. But do the best I can at the time. Have a {{HUG}} for support!"

Great to meet you! What a crazy, small world!

MarieB is right - I wear a CGMS, but it's not the Dexcom. I opted for the Navigator and I adore it. 2 years now. But the company is having all sorts of problems that I'm currently riding out. Dex looks a lot more stable!

We should meet up some time. I have an 8 month old daughter that will likely be along for the ride, but if you ever want to grab coffee or lunch, let me know.
