Gar. I tried Amey and Peggy's sytem for the first time yesterday, and it leaked today at work. My output was super watery, and I still have that pesky sore. So maybe I just need my skin to heal BEFORE I try it. WAAAHHH. Go away, stupid sore. I have another Dr's appointment Friday, and if it isn't healed they're sending me to dermatology. NOTHING seems to work when I have the sore - everything leaks and it only leaks right where the sore is, so it's probably that, right? The "system" seemed to work fine on every other part of the wafer. I've tried about 7 different kinds of absorbant material under the wafer. I use powder. I've tried paste, seals, convex, flat, one piece, two piece, inserts...I've tried using powder, then absorbant pads, then taping over it with waterproof tape, then the wafer. Boo hoo hoo. This sore MUST GO.
