We've been fighting with our insurance company for months now about getting the OmniPod. They just aren't giving in about anything at all. =( Now ultimately the OmniPod would be my first choice for a pump, but I just don't think that it's going to happen. My parents are sick of fighting with them and I can understand, we can't switch insurance companies because this one is with my dad's work so we're stuck with them. I have a MiniMed pump at home, I wore it for about six or so months and wasn't getting the control that I had before.. So my question is; what should I do.. should I keep fighting for the OmniPod or start back on the MM and try to make it work? I also would ultimately like to get the Dexcom 7+ CGM as well, and I think that we might be able to get the insurance company to pay for that instead of the OmniPod. I just would like to have the control that I had before I even started on the pump, while I'm on it. I had an A1C of 5.5 and my numbers were barely ever too high or too low.. but now my A1C is 7 and my numbers are out of whack and have been since I started on the MM which was almost a year ago. And then there's the fact that I despise having diabetes because of the shots 5+ times a day, some days i almost can not bring myself to stab myself with a needle even though I've been doing it for like eight years. If I had a pump that kept my numbers in control and kept my A1C consistently down, I would be thrilled, I think that it would take a load of stress off of my shoulders.. Now I'm sorry for that being so super long, but I need your opinions!
