PamK, the relationship between patient and endo in the USA is obviously very different to here in Oz. Here they are expert advisers, but they cannot and do not dictate what you should do. Yes the endo asks me at least once each year if I’d consider going on a pump, I give my polite but firm answer, then we move on to the next topic de jour.
Living with T1 is a complicated business. A farmer is happiest when he’s on the farm tending his cows, not when he’s in a suit and tie and sitting at a desk. A person with T1 is best when they are happy with what they are doing, not when they are forced to deal with something that they would prefer not to. So building on an earlier point I made, they are forcing you into a stressful situation and bingo, what do they think the stress is doing to your levels?
Or have they even considered that?
