Packing for a Weekend Trip

This past weekend I spent some time in Lynchburg, Virginia. As I prepared for this trip, just like any other trip, my top priority was making sure I had enough diabetes supplies for the entire weekend. The first thing I packed was my Omnipod Case. In my supply case, I checked to make sure I had enough lancets, alcohol wipes, test strips, insulin, extra batteries, and extra pods. I keep my insulin in a silicone protective case, just in case it drops. This provides me with a feeling of safety and security that when I’m on the go and life gets crazy, worrying about my insulin vial dropping isn't one of my concerns.

One time, I was in the middle of changing a pod when my precious puppy dog wagged her tail, knocking my bottle of insulin onto the floor. Of course, it shattered, and of course, I was already running low on bottles of insulin. After that, I began searching for solutions to prevent this from happening again. That’s when I found the silicone protective case and quickly purchased one. Now, I have a greater piece of mind knowing that if my insulin bottle falls to the floor, it will not break.

The Omnipod Case makes traveling so much easier. I can quickly look in my case and see that I have everything I need before I head out the door. I love that I can now fit an extra pod in my case. Before, I would have to pack extra pods separately, hoping I didn’t forget them. While in Lynchburg, I went to a baseball game with some friends and being gone for so long, I didn’t worry about my pod running out of insulin, since I had an extra with me.This Omnipod Case not only fits everything I need, but it is also compact enough to slide into my purse or backpack while I am on the go. This made running out to dinner in Lynchburg with my friends so much more convenient. Life has become so much easier since purchasing the Omnipod Case!
