My pod should be here tomorrow. I am like a little kid waiting for Christmas. I was very excited to hook myself up, get all the settings in, and off I go podding. Until... dun dun dun... I got a call today from an OmniPod clinical specialist (or some title like that). She said we have to set up a time for the pump start. I tried to resist and beg to be able to just start it on my own and just call her of there were problems. I attempted to blow past her incredible mind powers to make me do a formal pump start. I have been pumping for 9 years now, have done a Minimed upgrade on my own, and a Cozmo start on my own. Why couldn't I handle the Pod start on my own? I just wanted to get going with this already. And being on pens now instead of my Cozmo since I am just about out of pump supplies for the Cozmo (read: 2 sites left), I really was yearning to be back pumping (this after only what... 2 or 3 days using pens?!). So... now, my pod will be here tomorrow, and I have to resist the temptation to start on my own... until a week from Wednesday!! How cruel it is! I'm confident I'd be able to figure it all out on my own, but I'm wondering if there's some kind of liability issue with people doing self-pump-starts with the OmniPod system. Sadness... I have to wait over a week! I'm impatient!!
