Congratulations on your 6.4... I have just reconected to my pump, having had about 3months free of it, for what sounds t\like the same reasons as yourself. But for no good reason, as part of a timing thing for a presentation I am doing on Pumps, I needed to work out how long it takes for a line change and all of that.
Well the long and the short of it is, I inserted the cannula and all that, and well haven't really thought of coming off my pump since.
I think for me the realization that I can have a break from it if I want has made a huge difference.
I am connected now to my pump with the idea of if it works great, if no so be it and I can go back to the MDII option. I have no expectations this time, and I think that has made all the difference.
Don't get me wrong, I still don't like the whole being connected thing. I think about leaving the pump behind and using MDII quite a bit of the time, but I am continuing at this stage.
I will just wait and see what happens.
At the moment you just need to take each day as it comes, and like Anne said
I now feel that I have a choice of being attached to a pump or not, and don't mind it as much then.
