?Hopefully and if possible I would like to hear from past pump users that have gone back to taking shots and how they are doing at the present?

?Thank you for the reply, as far as getting my doctor to write a letter, it
was done and based on my age I am on Medicare which becomes a very large
hurdle, not being a T1 creates a very large problem and requires that I must
meet the C-peptide numbers which I don't qualify (the C-peptide becomes a
must if you are a T2), therefore I am left at the mercy of my secondary
insurance. Initially and for a large number of years they supported me but
as of this year my policy does not include insulin pumps. In general, the
cost between cartridges and infusion sets to support the pump runs over
$800.00 every 3 months, this type of expense for some one on a fix income is
very excessive. I have fought it long enough over six months with negative
results. So the time has come to give my-self shots and see what happens
that is why I was hopping to run into someone that has had the same problems
and how is he or she doing today.
To the above information I can also add the following, 3 years ago I was
diagnosed as having Alzheimer's but thanks to a great Neurologist and the
prescription that he put me on I have not lost my memory, so I guess there
is hope for everyone. Any additional information on using insulin shots
would be greatly appreciated.
what exactly do you want to know?
