How long after you were diagnosed were you put on a pump?? Or we're you ever on a pump? Very curious about pumps but extremely scared for some reason. I've only been diagnosed for 2 months

You will live it. Gives you so much freedom. Just remember the pump only works with what you feed it so keep testing

Thank you so much everyone! I'm trying to keep an open mind about it. The unknown is scary to me. Everything was really scary until I knew more about it all.
