Thanks for that Tim, well both me and my son both started our Pump life this afternoon and already I think I know what you are talking about. About 5 years ago I went on the DAFNE course and at the time it was a diabetic life changing experience which gave me the freedom away from jabbing at certain times and eating a set amount of carbs. I expect this pump experience to me the next step to normality (if that can be obtained) but with a whole new learning plan needed and to forget everything that I have previously learnt. I expect the first couple of months to be a challenge as getting to know how to live with the thing!!!
