Sorry it’s taken me so long to post, I just finished up my summer internship and have been crazy busy.
So, today is the first day of the rest of my life. LOL- ok totally joking. Well, technically every day is the first day of the rest of your life, but alas, I digress. Today I started pump therapy (aka I started my insulin pump). I have mixed feelings, but mostly those of excitement. A pump means no more shooting-up in restaurants or in the park if I want a snack. No more painful syringes and bruises from shots gone awry.
Many people choose the insulin pump to treat their diabetes from the beginning. The idea took me a little extra time to accept; always having something in me, connected to me with tubes and adhesive loomed over my head like a grey cloud. Well, that cloud rolled in and I got through the rain, because ladies and gents I have that thing in me right now, and it feels pretty damn good to not have to accept my fate full of needles.
I will continue to care, until the cure.
Anywho, another more light-hearted post is on its way in the next few days, so stay tuned!
