In need of supplies
I'm in need of Omnipod pods. I have 4 left! My insurance was cancelled on the 1st of the year and I can't afford the $600 for COBRA insurance to continue it. Does anyone have any for free or to buy?
If you have no insurance you can apply for state Medicaid for free.
You can apply for state Medicaid for free :)
yeah, I've applied for IHN in Oregon, but they won't cover my Omnipods.
I was able to have a pre authorization go through for insulin and strips, but not pump supplies
Worst case scenario injections :/ I know it sucks! Have you checked amazon? Or ebay for omnipod?
It kind of sketches me out to buy them on EBay, and actually I think it's illegal to sell them...but I'm not above looking. Haha
Amazon has quite a few listedz
I just looked :)
They're over $200 a box though. ugh. I hate our medical coverage

For those that take insulin with your meals, how do you go about taking it when you're out at a restaurant or other social gatherings? Do you take it out in front of everyone or do you try to find a secluded spot to take it? How does it make you feel when you take it, knowing people are curious?
Checked BS 3 times, both read over 600. Mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experience with DKA. I have almost all the signs of DKA expect large ketones and vomiting. Only small ketones and a stomach ache.What do I do? I would feel safer at a hospital but mom won't take me!Please Help!

This one's kinda for the ladies, but I don't know maybe guy diabetics have this problem too? Do y'all experience frequent bladder and yeast infections? If so have you found anything that helps? Thanks

Checked BS 3 times, all over 600. Won't register on meter. Have almost all the signs of DKA but mom won't take me to hospital because they aren't experienced with DKA and we would just waste our money. We can't go to another hospital because we dot have insurance there. Please help! I feel horrible!
