As of today, and a $66.79 payment, "Master P" is 100% mine.
"Master P" is the name I have given my pump. I use a Minimed 722 insulin pump and when I got it, my insurance would only pay a portion of the price. Luckily their payment plan was not a major burden as far as monthly bills go but it seems I have been paying for it forever!
Having been a diabetic for 19 years does not make me feel like a know it all in any way. In fact, since I started blogging, got on this pump, and met all of you, I have found that I know very little. Each day I learn more and more about this disease and one day I hope I can help others learn about it and how to deal with it.
My pump has played a huge part in being a Born Again Diabetic and now his friend "Shell" (that's my CGM) work together to help me manage my blood sugar and see what medicine and food does to my blood glucose level. It may not be perfect but it provides information and insight I never thought I would know.
So what now? Honestly I am going to enjoy a few extra dollars in my pocket each month for a while. I figure this has been working for me for a while so getting a new pump is not really in my future unless something really cool comes along.
BEEP BOOP BEEP!!!
Sorry Master P, I didn't mean you weren't cool! (Also I didn't know you could hear.)
