My DE Gerri came over yesterday evening and trained me on the Omnipod. It’s a fun little gadget, but I can see now how much my diet is affecting my control. The Pod only holds 200 units, and I will probably go thru that in 24hrs or less. DAMN. That’s alot of insulin. So…I’m really going to have to watch my Carb intake, and that really sucks, because I’m a carb addict! BIG TIME. Probably how I got to this point in the first place. It makes me feel really guilty that I KNOW what to do, and how to do it, I just can’t seem to MAKE myself do it. Reality really bites.
YES! Food addiction is very hard. My husband and I talk alot about that while we are watching shows on obesity (I hate that word, just tell me I’m too danged fat!) I’m at a loss sometimes as to what to eat. Low carb, low fat, low calorie…nothing much left seems like but lettuce! I can give myself extra insulin to cover what I eat, but I really need to learn to just not eat it…insulin is expensive, and these pump pods are too!
