I am pretty excited, today I decided to get an insulin pump. My insurance has come through on something (finally) and is paying for 80% of the cost. When I was told about using the pump cost was an important issue for me.
It will not be too bad for $50 every 3 months I get supplies for the pump though I will have to pay for the insulin out of pocket. Don’t ask, it is the way insurance is set up at work. Anyway, I figure you cannot put a price on control so I know I can make it work somehow. Maybe I will donate my pancreas, shhh don’t tell anyone it is broken.
I cannot wait to use the pump. It is set up to automatically inject you when needed. The only time I have to interact with it is when it is meal time or when I shower. So every 5 days for the latter. I am kidding, I maintain great hygiene.
The meter I receive is set up to communicate with the pump and will inject me when needed. Then I am going to save up for a bedazzler so I can pimp my pump with sequins. Anyway, science and technology are rad and I cannot wait for it to make me a better diabetic.
