I got the call from Insulet today. My insurance has approved the pod and my first shipment is on the way to my CDE… I’m very excited and a little nervous. I used the try-out pod and had little trouble. I had placed it on my lower back, and it was super comfortable. I wore it for 2 days, and in the middle of the night, I had forgotten it was on. I pulled my pants up in the restroom and ripped it off in the process. Whoops.
Anyway, I’m not worried at all about the comfort of it. But I am a little scared about the negative comments I have heard. I’ve never used a pump before-- I’ve been on shots for a long time. I wonder if I’m doing the right thing by starting it. But I can always go back to shots if I need to!
