Why I love to pump

One of the benefits of pumping is that, when a playoff game goes into double-overtime, I can stay awake ’til the wee hours of the morning watching and waiting for a game-winning goal, and not worry about waking up for my regularly scheduled breakfast.

Because when there’s no long-acting insulin, there’s no set meal times.  I can modify my regular routine on a whim, with no prior planning.  And that’s worth a lot.

Because It’s The Cup.
