So I talked to MM today and they said my pump was ordered and will come on Thursday! I was really excited until I talked to Joslin about scheduling the training. They won't schedule me until after my appointments on Wednesday. With some pushing, they told me they'll scheduling training sometime in January, but they don't even have dates yet. I thought the training classes were more one-on-one and that they could be scheduled right away, but I guess I was wrong. When I said I was frustrated by this, the nurse was kind of unsympathetic because apparently things are just happening really fast for me. I guess it seems that way to them, but when I've been trying to get a pump for four months to cut down on three hours a day of diabetes management, it doesn't seem that way at all.
This just seems very frustrating, because I don't feel like I even need much training. They are going to show me how to use the sets on Wednesday. I've done the pump school online and I can quote from "Pumping Insulin" as needed. I was really looking forward to a holiday where I can actually eat what I want instead of avoiding most of it. I guess I will have to wait another year for that. I don't really feel excited about this anymore. Also I think I will start titrating the Lantus down tonight.
