Does your "supplier" offer a vacation override? My insurance only allows me to fill via a mail-order pharmacy that will only provide me with a 90-day supply, unless I can convince them I am going on vacation. In the past, this has meant they want to see my travel itinerary.
I also found that I had to be extremely persistent and insistent that I be allowed to speak with a "supervisor" and to be sure and take names, dates and details of the call.
Hi Maia, I guess I'm just commenting to say hi idk I saw that you were dignosted about a month before me and we are both the same age that really stuck out to me. I'm 18 and was also dignosted when I was 17. So how has life been since you were dignosted I see you use the OmniPod do you like it? I just started using the minimed insulin pump about 5 months ago and I love it, WAY better than using the pen. Well hope to hear back from you soon
Thank you Maia. It has been really scary the past couple of days trying to balance everything with Diabetes against school work, making friends, etc. Not to mention trying to be discrete about having diabetes during meals in the cafeteria.
What did you do to manage stress when finals and mid terms came about?
Maia, wow what an incredible attitude you have about the pump! I am totally considering the Omnipod--I am also always, ALWAYS on the go, and if it works for you I can't see why it wouldn't for me! I'm glad you're doing so well :)
I'll certainly let you know if I'm in the neighborhood! Take care!!
Hey Maia, I too got diagnosed with T1 last summer, at 20 years old!! I am highly considering the omnipod. The only thing holding me back is the inability to monitor glucose so closely like the minimed. What are your thoughts on the pod? It sounds like you love it!!!
