I'm considering going on the Pump at some point in the not-too-distant future, and I wanted to ask a question of some women who are using the Pump. It sounds really stupid....but I want to know how your work it into your outfits. I'm 28 and I like to wear a cute little strappy dress every now and then....or go to the beach in a bikini....and I feel like I won't be able to do this on the pump. I'll always need a pocket to put it in, or a waist to clip it to. I know it sounds so trivial, but this is one of my biggest issues with the Pump. Currently, even though diabetes is such a big part of my life, it's not really a visible part. The idea of making it so visible and the idea that it would dictate what I wear and maybe even what I do really scares me.
Please don't write me off as being materialistic.....I'm really worried this is going to be a self-esteem issue for me.
Can someone please give me some words of wisdom?
