I dread having to put a new pod every three days, and the needle it injects into my body is so painful and uncomfortable."

"My pod froze as I was on the hiking trip with my friends, and I had to be evacuated because I was unable to administer insulin to my body."

"I was coming back from a trip and I got stuck in traffic when my sugar level immediately start dropping. I was at risk of fainting and dying."
