Since switching to Lantus and Novorapid, that problem has pretty much been solved for me. When I was on N and R, I had to eat every 3hours..but I can't eat that much, and I would end up throwing fits as a kid when my mom tried to force me to eat. I think most of our fights were, and still are often as she isn't used to the fact I don't have to eat every 3hours anymore, about eating.
I would suggest asking your endo, since you're not on the pump, to see if there's another option for you that will give you more freedom. I live a pretty crazy life, so being able to take my short acting only when I eat, has helped me a lot instead of being on a strict dosage timing like when I was using R for short acting. I hate carb counting with a passion, but I will admit it has helped as well.
I will most likely only get a pump when they attach it to me kicking and screaming. The Lantus and Novorapid, I find at least, has given me the freedom that people who use pumps claim they have. I eat when I want, how much I want, and whatever I want(though I usually did that anyways..I just didn't have as good of control cuz the N & R didn't work for me..) or I don't eat if I'm not hungry. It's not the best thing I'll admit, but I skipped breakfast and lunch and had dinner at 6pm because I wasn't hungry during the day.
