Waiting and Waiting . . .
Right now I am just waiting to get my insulin pump. It seems like I have been waiting forever and really I have been waiting for almost 7 months since I made the choice in January. There is so much that needed to be done in order to get it and now I just want it to arrive.
I am glad that it is covered by the government; however, that slows down the whole process. It will be exciting when it is delivered to my house and I can begin using it once the trainer comes to my house. I am also very nervous because I know as much as I prepare myself for this I will never really know what it's like until I've got it attached to me.
I also will now be going to Panama with my friend Michelle in August, so that will be interesting. I know that just after I was diagnosed I went on a cruise and managed to deal with my diabetes, so I am not too worried - I can always use needles then.
I am really excited for what is to come. I know that I have worked hard for everything I have accomplished this far and it's nice to see hard work pay off. It is very true that if you believe in something you can achieve it. I know that it is said all the time, but I sincerely believe that if you believe in yourself you can achieve anything.
