I had a complete pump failure last Sunday. You have to understand that over night on Sunday means Tuesday morning.
With the insurance changes coming up, I had decided to investigate another method of diabetes management.
Now, I have some issues that are probably not going to change. I have some eating issues and I've never been able to be on a schedule. That cuts out 90% of diabetes management method.
In fact, that probably only leaves the pump.
I've had problems with getting too insulin in my system -- and I did during the pump failure. I took the choice of dosing every 4 hours. One option I have been thinking of is trying one of the new long acting insulins, but I did not this round. Even with dosing every four hours, I slipped up -- I forgot to eat lunch, or didn't even plan for it, and went low doing dog agility. I was able to fix it, but just didn't plan for the whole incident. It is something I should get better at, but it probably won't happen since I've been living this way for decades.
