Have I got it all wrong? Prior to pumping, I got the impression that pumping... if you stick with it through the initial rough patch that you would "usually" (everyone is different) gain better control (excluding the few failures etc). But from reading the parents board, it is seeming like most (even those that prefer pumping) believe that MDI actually gains better control than pumping does but pumping "can" just be easier (or harder, depending on what you think is hard). That was kinda the whole reason I started pumping, because I thought that if I could just "figure it out" I would have vastly better control. While some switch for the "ease" of it and not having to take shots all the time. While I have found that to actually be a bigger benefit of pumping than I thought it would, it was never really one of the reasons for me starting in the first place as I thought shots were actually a pretty "easy" thing to do (though did have to actually make sure to bring the lantus etc if I was gonna be out late etc, which was a pain, cus sometimes I wouldnt know until after I had already left home). Does pumping actually more often than not lead to even slightly worse control than MDI, but just a more "normal" feeling about life etc?
