Okay, it's been a year and while there has been some good things about OmniPod, the cons have outweighed the pros. Probably a combination of first time ever using a pump, first year of college, stress of dealing with college, pods, etc. and sensitive skin - the rashes are the tipping point. Yeah, we've tried the wipes to remove the glue, tried lotion, tried prescription lotion - I think my daughter is just stressed and she is glad to be back on pens.
The good news - I think she is more responsible now and knows that even with a pump your numbers can creep back up if you don't pay attention to it.
The bad/good news - we switched meters (Contour USB --downloading was another issue with OmniPod) so now we have tons of extra strips that don't match our meter. I'm one of the lucky ones - my insurance pays a good portion of her strip costs. We are saving one of her old mini meters and a box of strips for an emergency...but strips expire so it makes no sense to keep all of them.
Is there a program set up anywhere to donate strips? They are the FreeStyle strips (not FreeStyle Lite).
