Hello, and sorry if this subject isn't in the correct category. I have been a type one diabetic for more than twelve years. I use pens, and the two insulins that I use are lantus and novorapid. I have depression as well. And I haven't been handling my diabetes well in months, because I just would not care about it anymore. I often would not get correct doses because I did not bother calculating them well, and I also would accumulate shots or even forget to give myself lantus. Which eventually resulted in many bad blood sugars. After a few critically low blood sugars and a lot of panic attacks, I finally understood that it was time to change things and to handle things like they were being handled before. When things are good, my blood sugar does not get higher than 190 mg/dL and it never gets lower than 75 mg/dL. Unless a big accident happens. Moreover, I have had good A1Cs for years (between 6,1% and 6,7%), except for the last 6 months, in which my A1C was at 7,5%. But my entire family thinks that the problem actually comes from insulin and from my pens, and that it wasn't my fault all along. Therefore they want me to get an insulin pump instead of using my pens. But I do not want a pump. I do not really want to try it, and I fail to see how could my life get any better with a pump, considering that my problem mostly comes from the fact that I would not adjust my shots correctly. I am seeing my endocrinologist in two days and I am afraid she will persuade me to get a pump as well, considering she had been proposing it to me even when I would get correct glycemias and A1Cs. But I insist on the fact that I do not want to change my way of getting insulin and that if it ever had to happen, it would impact me greatly. I have been using pens for twelve years, I cannot imagine a life without them. I also have some diabetic friends who have a pump and aren't that satisfied, which also makes me doubt its reliability. Could anyone who has a pump or who has had a pump in the past help me with that decision? Should I really get a pump or should I not? I have been asking myself this question for weeks and weeks, and the more I think about it, the more I do not want to get a pump, but I could be wrong. Thank you in advance!
