i just got my pump 3 months ago and i love it. there's been times when i wish i could just rip it out and go with out it for a day or so. getting used to it came easy for me. the day after i started i felt really sick, like i was constantly low that shaky feeling, but my Dr said it was normal so dont worry if youre not feeling so hot tomorrow, just get some rest.
i checked my blood sugar so much at first, but theyll cut that down too and youll know what your body needs without having to look it up.
getting used to sleeping with it, and changing it on your own might take a while, but youll get used to it. i clip mine onto my tank top when i sleep and put a shirt on over, just cuz i had the problem with tugging on it. i got really sick last month and had a cough attack and ripped it out at 2 am. ever since the shirt is my best friend lol.
i have a problem with dropping my pump when im changing or what not. it doesnt hurt though! just a tug. FYI lol.
also if you have the problem with it not sticking for the full 3 days. i bought this stuff off animas for like 10 bucks its sticktac or something, it works awesome, better than IV Prep just takes longer to take off.
good luck!! let us know how things go!! when i first started every time i needed help or didnt know what was normal, i posted something. everyone on here helped me so much, so dont be afraid to come to us :)
