My friend's mom had this one made for me. I adore this hoodie! It says Nick Jonas on the sleeves and has the JB crest on the chest and a HUGE JB crest on the back! I have JB crest guitar pick earrings AND Phineas, my insulin pump has a black skin with little golden JB I detect a pattern here? :) Needless to say, as just another type 1 diabetic I am so grateful to have someone as amazing, as talented, as inspiring, and as handsome ;) as Nick Jonas to look up to. On bad 'betes days, when I'm in a middle of a, what I'd like to call, "a 'betes grump session", sometimes I don't want to talk to anyone, or want anyone to hug me....I just want to sit down, put my headphones on and listen to A Little Bit Longer or any other Nick J song...I feel hugged in that moment....hugged by someone that just gets it. That understands. know...non-D folks just "don't know what it's like to feel so low" sometimes. Yay for: inspiration Yay for: comfort Yay for: 'betes buddies ;) So tell me, what gets you out of a 'betes grump session? PS: my pump's peaking out in my hoodie pocket haha! I clip it there sometimes when I'm at home, but it's usually chillin in my butt pocket :)
The Omnipod
The Omnipod
My eight year old daughter 'the future engineer' has Type-1 Diabetes and just started using the Omnipod. The system has two main components- the Insulin reservoir / pump seen above- which is coupled with a wireless controller. This particular part is disposable (recyclable now- good.) and only designed to be used for 72 hours before it is replaced. The following pictures are what we found when my daughter wanted to 'take it apart' to see how it works. Proud Dad moment #1- nobody has to suggest opening up a gadget and seeing what makes it tick to me twice. It was dissected in the kitchen moments later. This unit was one of our training devices and only pumped Saline for three days- she is on it for real as of this morning. The overall view shows the Insulin reservoir (bottom right) along with the motor that controls the pump. When the gear wheel to the left of the reservoir is rotated by hand the drive screw plunges the stopper in and Saline is forced through the cannula tube. In the center you can also see a heavy spring that I assume is the force that deploys the firing mechanism that sets the cannula under the skin. At the top is the battery compartment.
