Diabetes sucks. I go up and down and crash way to often. I need a pump! I would really like to live long enough to see my children grow up. I am filling out the paperwork for my insurance tomorrow and see what they will cover.

I crash once a day, or I am over 250. Can't keep it straight. It's so hard! (yes I am new at this) Diagnosed in April. Type 1. I can't keep crashing! It's so scary and I hate it! I shake and sweat and just feel awful.

Try wishuponahero.com  if you're looking for some help getting one. 

Do you have an insurance company? Can they pay for part of it?

I was able to get my insurance co to pay for part of my coagulation monitor so that I could test at home. I just had to prove that it was more cost effective for them if I tested myself vs. going to the doctor weekly. 

Good luck! I hope you get one!
