#WW: It’s TOO Quiet


I have enough friends with kids to know that when it seems too quiet, there is usually trouble.

Same goes for my CGM. My alarms go off for sugars below 75 and above 180, respectively. But I don’t have trend alarms, so I could be trending in either direction and not know it until it’s too late. (Given delays, I’m usually in the 200’s by the time my alarm goes off.)

My instructor asked one night if it’s weird to NOT have alarms going off all the time. The answer? Yes!

Today I treated myself to a larger cup of coffee than normal because I went to sleep around midnight. (And I work both jobs today.) No alarms. So I got nervous. Safely under my high alarm range but higher than I want to stay for a long period of time. Bolus administered.
