Two years ago today, despite being quite nervous about the whole "attached to my body 24/7" thing, I took the plunge and began pumping. I even documented the whole thing for my knitting blog as part of Type 1 Awareness Day.
Turns out, going on the pump was the best thing I ever did!! I still think that it isn't necessarily the best option for everyone - but it's been great for me. Before I pumped, my A1C was stuck in the 7's (aside from a random 6.4 right after I quit my job, but three months later I was back at 7.1). One month after I started pumping, my A1C dropped to 6.7. And in the two years since then, I've been no higher than 6.3.
Honestly, I was extremely freaked out about where I would wear the pump and scared that I'd hate being attached to it. But most of the time, I barely even know it's there. I stash it in a pocket, clip it to my waist-band, or sew up a little pouch to tuck it into. It's rarely in the way.
So, Happy Pumpiversary? You bet!! I polled FaceBook and Twitter this morning for the proper ways to celebrate.
As Kelly suggested, I may just have to fire up the dual-wave bolus feature and celebrate with one of each!!
