Again after 5 years on waiting list I'm extremely thankful to be approved for a pump. I hate to come to you all with my concerns as I know many of you've fought hard for yours. But I'm terrified. I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I cant continue as I am, either getting up twice during the night to correct, waking up with good bg but exhausted or I sleep through the night but wake up with a bg in the teens equally exhausted. Damn dawn phenomenon I'm due to get my pump in Sept and as I've said before that's a busy month for me...moving house, wedding abroad and starting home assessment for adoption. The thought of this alone puts my bg up! I've brought my concerns to my Dsn several times but she keeps reassuring me it wont be as bad as I'm imagining. I've asked about deferring but that's not an option due to their training schedule. And the pump is to help me get good control for the adoption medical. I guess my main concerns are, 1) I notice a massive difference in my bg on stressful days. I.e a bad day at work I'll tend to struggle to come down below 12 whereas on a relaxed day off my bg is very steady around 6-8. How do I manage that on the pump? Especially that first month which I will find many stressful days. 2) I sometimes take on an odd night duty at work to help them out or if I'm saving for something..will I have to stop this? 3) is the math a lot different? It took me a while to get my head around carb counts/ratios so am worried I won't catch on. Thank you everyone who commented on my previous post. I just csnt stop worrying over it. I think if the timing was different I'd be very excited.
