So my biggest fear just came true -- I have always feared in my 1 1/2 yrs with the Omnipod that it would start beeping uncontrollably because of an occlusion when I was at work and didn't have the PDM nearby. I had been lucky so far that occlusions are rare and have only happened at home. But, alas, it happened just now. I am at work, and I was leaving the bathroom to head back to my office and the high pitched beeping started. I freaked out because I would have to come back to my desk beeping (and none of my coworkers would know why!!) So I sprinted back to the office, grabbed my PDM case, and sprinted back to the bathroom ( and only passed a couple of people in the hallway). For those of you not familiar with Omnipod, you cannot make the beeping (screeching is more like it) stop until you have the PDM. So I made it back to the bathroom and then had to change my pump on the floor of the bathroom (luckily just our office members use it but still that's gross). It was embarrassing and has defintely gotten my heart rate up.
Phew, happy Friday to all of you... hope you days are going better than mine!
