I'm not trying to brag but my pump has seen some very intense sporting events, traveled half of the country, met celebrities, spent two days with a cycling team, and met a couple senators. It has also been on my hip for some of the toughest moments of my life, it sees me cry when I'm trying to hide my emotion because I need to be strong for others. It is the only one that can hear me when I talk to myself in good times and bad. It has vacations on my dresser when it is time for me to shower and for other more intimate moments. If my pump could talk I would pay it off so it could not speak of those moments.
I would like to think that my pump and I have a good relationship. We often like to hurt each other, I hurt my pump when I fall off the bike and it pays me back when I'm changing and it falls off of my hip. Nothing is more painful than when my pump falls and pulls on the infusion site. At the end of the day i love my pump and can't imagine my life without it, I never want to take a break from it. I feel that I'm married to my pump and like any marriage it will anger me or upset me but with some patience and tweaks our relationship is back to normal in hours. To many it is just an insulin pump that sits on my hip all day, to me it is like a member of the family. It has been an amazing six years together and I can't wait to see what the next six years will bring!!
