Like others, I'm also curious about the decision-making and reasons for or against a certain treatment method. Good to know and apply to my own life. I've been pumping for 10 years, since my early 20s. Love it for the flexibility and convenience, and it's helped me get my A1c down to low 6s at various times. But I've taken breaks, the first being a five-month hiatus in mid-2010. Because honestly, it eventually got to be too much emotional baggage thinking about the site changes every few days and trying to find new real estate. My A1c dropped a whole percentage point, and made me more accountable and careful - because I didn't have that flexibility. Went back on and did fine, and still love my pump, but three weeks ago went on another hiatus. I'm not sure what the future holds, but am certainly a fan of both MDI and pumping - and go by the mantra of "do whatever's best for you." Thanks for sharing this. Good topic to discuss.
