November 2010 newsletter news: Silly pump thing

Ever pulled your pump tubing out? Well, you are not the only one. But thankfully, most people who’ve done something daft with their pump have a sense of humour about it. In a forum held on TuDiabetes, Robert Mitchel admits, he “Started playing with cat with the old tubing just some thing for him to bat at. Now he sometimes wakes me up pawing the covers back to play with the tubing that I am using.” Not for the feint hearted is the chap who’d forgotten he didn’t have his insulin needle cap between his teeth, where he usually put it when he was injecting, and stabbed himself in the tongue with the needle.
