Insulin Pump Fashion

It can be a challenge to wear cute clothes while attached to a pager-like device that keeps you alive. However, it is not impossible. So, ladies… here’s a peek into some of the ways I wear my pump and still feel cute!

1. Loud and Proud

On those days when I don’t care who sees my pump or what they think of it, I wear it facing outward, attached to my pocket or waistband. This is great for days when I am with close friends or family, or I am in a hurry and just don’t care. It’s also the best for days when I’m using the Enlite CGM and need quick access to my graph on my pump. (It can also be worn in the pocket with the clip hooked to the outside of the pocket, but this is less accessible).

2. Hidden in Plain View

My Flipbelt has made it where I can wear my pump in the belt over a dress and have many people not even realize it contains a medical device. This has been wonderful for photographing weddings. I can keep my pump on vibrate and feel it much more easily and consistently than if it were in a pocket.

3. Out of Sight, Out of Mind

This is the awesome part about being female and living in a place where it is cold for way too much of the year – I can attach my pump to my bra between the girls. Bustier women can get away with just doing that, but I have to wear a scarf over mine to hide the “pump bump.” This isn’t a very good solution for times when I’m using the CGM, or going out to eat in public, for obvious reasons, but it’s great for the days when I just want to look and feel “normal.”

Here are just a few of the ways to wear a pump and still look and feel great! Be confident and you can rock any style!

Flipbelt in Action

We shot a wedding this weekend about three hours from home for a friend from high school.

I used my Flipbelt for the first time on a photoshoot (Previously I would just wear a skirt/shirt combo and clip it to my skirt). This enabled me to wear a dress!!! Woo! The bride and groom know I’m diabetic, and when I showed the bride my pump in my belt, she exclaimed “I thought that was just a cute sash! I had no idea your pump was in it!”

The Vacation Post, Part One

I’m home from vacation and so overwhelmed with so many different emotions – happy to be home, sad to be back in Michigan, missing the Wisneski family (four legged members included, of course). I’m going to try to write a coherent post so, let’s see how this goes.

A non-runner’s review of the FlipBelt.

Last week I ordered and received my new FlipBelt from Amazon. The FlipBelt is made for runners to store their phone, keys, electrolyte gel, etc on their person while they run without looking like a fanny pack.

I’m not a runner. At all. Unless something is chasing me, trying to kill me. If you see me running, then you should probably run too.

Anyway, if it can store all those things, and is designed to be both comfortable and stylish, then it sounds perfect for my insulin pump! Plus, it was only $30 including shipping – definitely worth it to try it!

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog site! A little about me: I’m Abby (not Abigail), I’m 24 and currently live in southern Michigan.

My husband and I own LeWayne Productions, a small photography business. Photography has been a passion of mine for almost half of my life, and I’m blessed to be able to pursue it.

I was misdiagnosed as a type 2 diabetic on July 10, 2012 and reclassified as type 1 in December 2012. I began pumping in December 2013. I have a dog named Taz.

I was inspired to begin this site after becoming close friends with Frank of blackdogsrule, and also after sixuntilme and texting my pancreas began following me on twitter. I realized my life as a diabetic might be interesting to more than 2 people out there on the interwebs, and Photograbetic was born!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
