you may remember that one of the lifeguards at the pool we go to has an insulin pump.
we finally got to go to the pool last weekend - and it was lovely. the lifeguard wasn't working, but she was there enjoying the day - with her pink pump on! i never thought my diabetes experience at the pool would branch out farther than seeing her pump while she worked.
a few hours into our stay, a woman came up and asked me if i was wearing a new pump on my arm or a CGM - i explained that it is my dexcom ... as she pulled up her tankini to show me her omnipod on her stomach.
we had a nice little chat about pumps and CGMs along with how it works (or doesn't...) with my pump and how she's considering getting one.
i never would have known that she has diabetes if she didn't approach me - and now i'll always say hi when i see her at the pool.
it's like the real life #doc.
