I have been diabetic forever (since I was too small to remember being that small!). However, I only recently gave up MDIs in favor of the Omnipod. It has been good and bad, but most notably, I think I need a CGM in conjunction with the pump for lots of reasons. It would be awesome if you wouldn't mind sharing either the big benefits or big hurdles/annoyances about particular CGMs. I have to choose one and am really not sure what to get. My mom (also a Type 1) uses a Dexcom and hates it b/c the screen is too big for her to carry around, but that's the only opinion I know of!
