So in about 14 days I am going to have my insulin pump. I'm pretty excited about it but also pretty nervous. This is a big step for me. The one thing I'm nervous about is how much its going to hurt. Silly I know... I should be used to that sort of thing with MDI 4-6 times a day. I guess I'm kind of odd when I do my shots, I don't just jam it into my stomach I tend to put it in really slowly..does anyone else do it like that? So yeah my big question is the pain factor. I'm pretty sure they will give me one of those inserter things for the sets so maybe it will just go so quick my body won't have time to react?
Another question, I'm thinking about doing the sets in the back of my arm, when you do that do you make it so the tube is pointing up and string it thru your arm sleeve, down thru your shirt or do you have the tube facing down and just have it hanging out of the shirt...I would think it was make it a lot easier to pull out that way! So those were the two main things i've been thinking about lately, any responses would be great or any other tips that are helpful regarding the insulin pump :) Many thanks! :)
