Holy cow. Last week when my pod was priming I got a screamer. It would not stop. I stuck it in the freezer.
Last night, I took it out of the freezer, stuck it in my purse to remember to call Insulet when I got to work today.
I changed my pod last night about 8:00 PM.
At 4AM, I was jerked awake by the sound of an alarm. I stumbled into the bathroom and checked the pod. It looked fine. Looked at my PDM and there was a "?" at the top.
The alarm was blaring. I deactivated the pod and removed it. Put it to my ear and swore it did not sound like that was where the alarm was coming from but it would not shut up and I was still 1/2 asleep.
I walked to the kitchen and put the pod in the freezer.
Back in my bedroom, and there it was! The freaking alarm! I picked up the PDM, listened for an alarm, nope nothing. Picked up the box of old pods, nope nothing. Picked up the box of new pods??? Nope nothing.
Took the skin off my PDM. found the 1-800 # and called Insulet. Spoke to a very nice woman who instructed me to read her the "error code" on the PDM.
"What error code? There is no code, just an alarm screaming and a "?" mark at the top."
"Well, there is nothing wrong with your PDM then."
"Well what is screaming at me then?"
"I don't know ma'am. Look around the area and see if there is another pod that may have gone off."
I looked, we talked, I looked, she was being supportive.
In a final act of desperation, I moved my purse... and it got louder. I opened my bag, and there it was, the screamer had come back to life! It was the Zombie pod from hell come back to haunt me.
I put a paper clip in it, I moved it, shoved it down as far as I could and forced it around some more.
The voice at the other end of the phone said, "Ma'am just put it back in the freezer." So I did.
She is sending me 2 new pods. One to replace the one I removed in my sleepy stupor and one for the screamer.
I am buying a hammer to keep by me bed. The Zombies will not win the next round.
