We live in both worlds at our house too. My husband has been on shots for over 20 years with mostly good control and a1c's (there's been a few bumps in the road but who doesn't have those with D?). He has recently talked about a pump and even tried Connor's old MM522 for a couple weeks but is still not ready to give up what he knows and is used to and what works for him. Connor started pumping just shy of 4 months after dx. Pumping is what works best for him and he has no desire to do shots. There are advantages and disadvantages to both and each person has to choose what works best for them.
