I DIDN'T grow up with diabetes -- diagnosed as an adult, but that doesn't mean I liked shots any better than you did. I've been pumping 12 years now, and would NEVER give it up -- in a word -- FREEDOM! I wish everyone who wanted a pump could get one! :-)

Great video, Rachel! Really well done. I grew up doing "multiple daily injections", and got pretty used to it, but did NOT get good at it. Now I've used a pump for about 15 years, but I'll admit that I can imagine a day without it, too :)
