So, I just got my A1C results back. It's 8.6. Pretty bad, but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I haven't done it in about 2 years, so it was about time! But-I'm gonna try to get it down to 6 in six months!! We'll see....
I'm thinking of going on the pump. If anyone has any suggestions/pro's or con's, I would greatly appreciate it!! I met with someone about the OmniPod the other day and it sounds awesome not to be hooked to a tube...but, I wore the sample pod around and it's kind of bulky under clothes. Also, the I'm a little concerned about the adhesive. Anyway, more later!

Get the pump as soon as you can. The tube is much less inhibiting than you probably think. Omnipod seems bulky to me too. The benefits of pumping far outweigh the tube.

I resisted the pump for years. Now that I have one I love it. When my first one broke I cried because I didn't want to go a day without it. I find it funny now since I fought my doc for years about getting one.
