i had a friend ask me about my pump the other day... i was explaining to her how it works. how i only have to "poke" myself every 3 days now instead of 4x/day. she asked what the advantage to that was. as i tried to explain this to her, i started to do the math. i had, until 2wks ago, been doing an average of 4 injections daily for the past 10 years. that's 120/mth ~1440/yr ~14400 over 10 years!!! i had never really done the math before! then add the 1/day for the 26yrs previous to that ~ 9490 thats over 23000 injections!! mind boggling!!
so after i told her the math stats, her first words were "i could never do that" and my reply
"you could if you had to"
not sure why every non-PWD says that, but there it is. and not sure why that was my reply. wish i thought of something better!
