I came home from work and my little brother said, “A lady from Riverside County called, she is suppose to call you back in 15 minutes.”
The phone rang…
I took the phone from my little brother…
“Hello Cherise, my name is Debbie (Deb)I am the Omnipod Rep for your area.”
My first thought was…How did you find me?
She said, “Omnipod keeps a database of all the omnipod users.” Oh! makes since right…
The next thing she said was I read your blog and I have a lot of Omnipod users in Arizona and they don’t have any issues with the OmniPod staying on during the summer heat. She said there are a few other things I could use when I am in Arizona or Hot weather, alcohol pads are good but you have to use Skin Prep or IV Prep to keep the skin nice and sticky. She said if I have any other issues to call the 800 number and they can help me or call my Endo, they will contact her. I let her know I didn’t have any other issues with the OmniPod. I really like using it. She said she uses the Omnipod and has issues with it but it’s still a new product.
To sum everything up…I am sorry for blasting Omnipod’s adhesive! if I never would have posted the blog I wouldn’t have known about Deb and my question wouldn’t have been answered. Now I know what to use for my POD in extreme heat and so do you!!!
Thank you Debbie:)
You never know who’s reading what you are blogging about…lol
