I just wanted to say thank you all for the helpful tips on the OmniPod. It is my first experience with a pump, and I've been using it since Valentine's Day. It has been amazing! I've had 88% of my BG readings within my targeted range, and this past week I didn't have any readings over my intended range!

I've had lots of questions about things from moisture/insulin appearing in the window (q-tips after removing the needle cap!) to what to do when running (lots of helpful advice), and this has been a great community for getting all of that information. Not to mention how welcoming so many of you have been.

To make a long story short, thank you so much for contributing to this resource. I appreciate it so much!
