Tomorrow, July 24th 2010 will be a day to remember much like the day I was diagnosed with diabetes. I will start my insulin pump tomorrow once the Medtronic lady, Nancy arrives at my house. Of course we will have to go through various things, but once she leaves I will be all hooked up and ready to go.
A lot of people have asked about how nervous I am. Honestly, I am nervous and scared. I keep thinking, "ah this thing is going to be attached to me." I know that I should be more worried about the whole fact that it's keeping me alive, but honestly it's going to be a big obstacle having to figure out where to put this pump.
My mom has already asked if I can go shopping that day and I know that my sugar always goes low during shopping, so I joked and said I am going to have to get the shopping setting in - since you have different ratios/patterns programmed into your pump.
I know that I am going to be a grumpy, grumpy girl in the next few weeks because of having to get up every two hours to deal with the insulin pump, but I am fully prepared to do this while balancing my life.
So, this is the last post before I go on the pump. I know that a lot of people will be looking forward to tomorrow's post and honestly I am quite looking forward to it as well!
Talk to you tomorrow!
