The ups and downs of pumping it up

The ups and downs of pumping it up

Been absent for awhile but it couldn’t be helped! We have been on what seems like a long strange trip but in actuality it’s only been a week! Let me explain. We decided last year to put our dear darling son on an insulin pump for his Type 1 diabetes. Everyone says it’s the greatest thing and it makes life some much better. Well, I call Bullshit! What they don’t tell you, what would be considered the “rest of the story” is that in the beginning it can be pure hell and an absolutely roller coaster of a ride. Our son was well managed with the shots we have been doing for the past three years! I’m wondering now if we should have stuck with that method! I am having to get up at midnight and 3 am to check his blood sugar overnight. I never had to do that before! Needless to say with a full time job and the stress of this new experience, my nerves have been frazzled!! Thank goodness for classic rock played a high volume on my drive home!! 😉 so this is going to serve as a couple of Blog Share entries,! Hope you enjoy!

    I think this is my first visit to your blog (I love your blog name, I think I would have remembered it). I also always enjoy the Grateful Dead 🙂 Sorry to hear the treatment method you’re using is such a lot of work.

      Thanks Louise! I usually try to keep it light but sometimes I just have to say what I feel!

        I think that’s part of the point of a blog in my opinion…. having a space to let out how you feel when you need to.

    Dude. I am soooo sorry for that. Stress when you’re worrying about a child is SO much worse than any other type of stress. I can so attest to that!
    Meanwhile, thanks for the ride! I hope you can join us for one of the two mixes left before Hiatus!

    OH that just sucks all over. I’m so sorry. I hope it’s just an adjustment, and it starts to get better right away. I know a few people who do much better with their pump, but everyone is different.
    I hope you get some sleep, and your son feels better, and when/if you can, keep us posted! We’re pulling for both of you. (that and a buck might get ya a cup of coffee, but hey, we’re there in spirit!)

      Hehe thanks Joy! I know it will even out eventually but until then, I’ll just do my best and trust in the doctors to figure this out and lead us in the right direction!!

    You would think a pump would be more convenient, but it sounds like it has just added a new level of stress. I hope things work out.

    So sorry to hear that about your son. Hope as time goes by it will get better. We have a few diabetics in our family and they use the insulin shots. Not sure about the pump.

    Sounds like a grueling bind managing your son’s diabetes; I hope things settle down soon.

    Thanks for the music – particularly the Grateful Dead, which I’d not heard for a while.
