    I love it. I can see the fruits of my labor in my charts. I also see the story- maybe when I get stressed at work and didn’t realize I was at 225 or when I bolused too much for a lunch that wasn’t what I ordered. My line is not always straight but usually there is a story!

    After wearing an insulin pump continuously for 17 years, I am on a break. I do not like having to stick myself repeatedly though.

    I like the old school ways, my hands know intuitively how to use a syringe
