I've had one for 14 years and love it. Everyone is supportive, and you get some funny questions a lot, like if you're wearing a pager. Hardest part for me was finding an Infusion set that was right for me and getting used to sleeping with it.

I've had mine for two years and still at times struggle with where I wear it. But it's so much better than taking four to five shots a day and much better control.

It's all true BUT I had a pump and I got complacent with it and unless you really stick at it they will take it back!! Not trying to scare you more of a forewarning
