Je n'ai pas de pompe... je me fais mes 4 ou 5 injections par jour. Comment ça va?

Welcome home Zazou.....
This is a great place to share, to learn, and to grow...all the while meeting new people world wide, and making friends ♥
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions and take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well, by going to the headings in the aqua coloured box in the upper left hand of the home page. Click on "DHF Grassroots". Once you're in scroll down, click on "Canada embassy", and voilà! The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
Hope you find the support and information you came looking for. Here is a useful link to get you on your way:
Take care....and keep in touch!

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.

I have the Accu-chek Spirit. I've been using their pumps for over 20 years. I see you are deciding between the Pod and the Animas. I don't find the tubing to be any issue at all, for me, I'd rather not have some big plastic egg taped to my skin 24/7. (I do have many friends here who love the pod though) I like my Spirit because you get a back-up pump for those extremely rare times the machine breaks down or you have an accident with it. I have no need for a back-up plan, and haven't needed to take shots since I've been pumping.

glad you found the French speaking group, my French is really terrible.
