A while ago, my boyfriend gave me a list of reasons that he loves me. One was, "I love you because of your commitment to manage your diabetes better even though you do tend to beep a lot."
What a sweetie. :)
He and I have plenty of stories about pods beeping in private, but what are some of your stories about pods beeping in public settings? Here are a couple of mine:
--The first time I beeped in public was one of the worst! I'd been on the pod for about 10 days and was out of town for a Very Important Conference for my company's Most Important Customers at a swanky resort. As the marketing manager, I made a Big Presentation . . . and of course I started beeping about half an hour into it. My face turned bright red and the only thing I could think to do was to simply stop, walk over to my purse, open it up, get the PDM and press the "OK" button, then go back to the podium and continue as if nothing happened. Not a single person asked me about it ever. :)
--During a particularly intense 12-step meeting -- and, of course, during a moment of silence -- my pod started beeping. I was horrified and embarrassed to disrupt the meeting that way. To me, it felt worse than when someone's cell phone rings (which I hate!). Again, I didn't say anything and simply took care of business. After the meeting, one of the other members talked to me privately because it turns out that she was diabetic, too, and considering the OmniPod. She had seen the OmniPod logo on the case when I pulled it out of my purse. :)
