Hi everyone, thanks so much for your comments. I wasn’t alerted to your replies, otherwise I would’ve replied sooner! I must say you guys on here are so much more supportive and understanding than certain other diabetes forums I won’t name!
However, I have found out that Surrey PCT definitely are funding the Omnipod for other diabetics elsewhere, so I’m a bit confused. Why good enough for others and not me?
Anna W, I’m also a teacher and a photographer, as well as really into cycling, so I also am desperate for a pump that can’t be pulled out, get air trapped and that is as discreet as possible. Feeling as “normal” as I can is so important to me and my self-confidence, which has really been affected over the years. I personally think that if I feel better psychologically, my control will be better. This is especially important as I’m hoping to start a family as soon as things improve. It’s so frustrating, as in every other way, I’m as healthy as can be!
I’m going to make a note of all your ideas for my argument – loving the Olympic swimmer idea! I wish! In the meantime, I’ve got a trial of the Omnipod in a couple of weeks so I will keep you posted!
