I'm a pumper for about six years; type 1 for 46 years. I'm 56.
Check out "frio" or its equivalent for keeping insulin cool.
Insulin pens are helpful. I injected through clothes on many occasions without ill effects.
I did break a pump falling on it. I now wear it around my neck on a lanyard under my jacket.
Check your Bg every hour or 90 minutes, especially for the first two days, to discover your rhythms.

Good luck. Be smart. Don't worry.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
