Like nailing Jell-O to a tree

Omnipod

 

Ok the good news is there is starting to be less of me…the bad news is this makes positioning my omnipod insulin pump interesting. If you don’t know what that is it’s a small somewhat egg shaped pod that I wear that gives me insulin. See you cant just wear this anywhere. There are certain places on your body you are supposed to wear it and then you also have to account for clothing anything else that might effect it.

So not my stomach

 

Being round makes placement difficult, but so does becoming less round. As I get smaller things are migrating into that loose stage and shifting. This means my pod moves around more, which means its harder to keep it on and have it in a good spot. If it were winter I’d just wear it on my arms more but being the weather is getting warmer I really don’t like that option. Its not that I mind people looking or asking questions about the pod but my arms are one of my least favorite body parts. Wearing a pod there with a sleeveless or short sleeve would defiantly draw attention to this area. 

 

I guess this is just one more thing that is different about this journey when you involve type 1 diabetes. Time to work on toning some abs' !

 

Peace, Love and Happy Blogging
