        I truly think that I have gone to Heaven. I have LADA like Type 1 have had it for 4 yr. and this is the FIRST TIME that I have Felt like ME!! I will be 76 soon and this truly has been a huge break through for me. In America Omnipod was just approved by our Medicare, which is HUGE! Now it seems that I can at last have a Life Again! So Happy!!!!

        I'm on my fourth day in Omnipod Land and feel lucky to have also just made it to having Medicare approve. Same thing with Dexcom G5. It's good to be old, have T1, and have Medicare catch up!
