The stress and anxiety are killing me!
December 8, 2012 at 8:21 AM
Between my insulin pump breaking and realizing how bad off we are financially I am freaking out and on the verge if a panic attack constantly. It's killing me!

    Does your insurance cover it?  It sounds like its a medical necessity.  Your health comes before anything else.  Can any of those diabetes companies that have commercials help you or are they a scam?

     try to calm down some. worrying is not going to solve anything. i think you had a good idea when you said you would get a part time job and help. sell what you can sell or pawn some stuff.

    I know it's very hard - but try to calm down - the stress is not good for your health.  Huge hugs.....

    It does, but because mine is do old it is no longer under warranty, so it's not like they just overnight me a new one. I needed the Dr to write a script for it and it has to go through an approval process with insurance. Those little suckers are about $7,000!

    It is a pump that delivers continuous insulin that I must wear at all times. If it doesn't hold up until I get a new one ill have to switch back to 5 shots a day.

    Is the approval process anything like  a prior auth for meds?  That takes a few days. I would hope that if your doc knew your pump is being held together by TAPE he would do what he can to speed up the process.
