Click, breathe in, hold my breath, 1..2..3.. pop, ahhh resume normal breathing.
That’s what it sounds like when I am changing my infusion set. Click it into the inserter thing. Take a deep breath and tell myself that I just have to do it and on the count of three…. Push a little harder, squeeze both sides of the button … pop …starting to need to breath again … it’s in.
This weekend there was an extra step. After the pop was a DUH! As the infusion set popped out and fell into the sink. For a moment I looked in disbelief. I had forgotten to take off the adhesive. I guess that’s what I get when I try and rush.
The worst part is that I now am short on insulin and have to change my site again tonight. I really love the pump and I think it's easy most of the times, looks like Bonnie is trying to make sure I don't take her for granted!!
