Still massively pump-averse over here… I love being able to leave my bag of bits on the table, rather than having to carry it around will me all day every day. You can’t even take them off at night! The way I thrash around while asleep would make that a recipe for disaster. I do hear many brilliant ‘best thing I ever did’ success stories – and congrats to all those on here who have slashed their HbA1c’s while pumping, but I also hear plenty of stories about people who try it and then go back to MDI having seen little benefit in control and who hate the permanent attachment thing.

Pumps were suggested to me several years ago by a consultant as a way to get rid of a few low-level hypos, but I remain fairly firmly in the ‘no thanks’ camp (never say never though eh!).
