Anyone Else Anxious About Change?

I have previously ordered the Omnipod in an attempt to start myself on the pump, but my nerves got the best of me. The pumps have been stored away and yet I find myself wondering if I should give it a try.

  • Hi @gmanle01,

    If I was in your shoes, I’d certainly go for the change. You are a “locked member” on here so I have no idea about your length of time living with diabetes nor your past treatment protocol. And if your doctor prescribed using a pump, why question that professional advice without even giving the Omnipod

    For me beginning a pump protocol after 48 years managing diabetes with progressively better methods, was a game-changer. A pump has provided my with much more flexibility in my life. As long as I maintain proper basal rates [I have eight different “standard” basal rate changes each day] I need not be concerned about the occasion when I must skip a meal, for instance for surgery, or is a meal time is delayed, for instance at a banquet.

    I’ve survived for more than sixty years living with diabetes by being proactive – and staying aware.

  • What you’re feeling is normal, but don’t let it hold you back. When I first switched to a pump I felt kind of sad and like I was missing something. I was missing shots after 25 years of doing them! Weird but true. A pump helped me SO much. Would never go back to shots.
