As Vince and I walked through the grocery the other day, we heard a man say, “you have the same pump as I do” Vince’s pump normally hangs off his pocket of his pants so it is quite visible. The man’s wife was down the isle with their cart and he said it as he was passing us to get to her. It was so out of the blue. I walked toward him and noticed his Minimed Revel Pump on his belt and I asked him how long he had been diabetic. He said 50 years. He looked to be in his 60’s or 70’s (I am very bad at guessing ages). I asked him if he uses the sensor with the pump and he said no. His insurance wouldn’t cover the cost of the sensor. How sad! I hate hearing this! He did agree with us though that the Revel is a great pump and is awesome. I love seeing this, even though I know their life is as difficult as the rest of us, which is sad. I told Vince as we walked away how it makes me feel good to see others with a pump. He agreed. It makes us feel like we are not alone. There are others in our little screwed up world. That is why I love talking to all of the Diabetic Online Community here. You don’t see a person with a pump walking down the grocery isle everyday!
