A particularly appropriate title to encompass a number of things.
– I have not dropped off the planet, but keeping up with the blog has definitely dropped off my priority list. Lately, my topic ideas have been circulating around the new health care laws and how it’ll effect me personally. However, I’ve got enough politics floating around on my Facebook wall as it is – involving close friends. I don’t need to invite strangers to the party as well. But I have to note that I started this blog about a year ago and I’m still thrilled when I get comments from y’all. Maybe now that conference season is ending here soon, I’ll have more time to write.
– I headed out to a super fun convention for a day and a half, which was much more than I expected because I thought I would be working all weekend. So I attended as a relaxed social dancer and cheerleader to my friends. It was quite nice. One of my friends insisted on carrying me on to the dance floor to a safe spot and goofing off. He lead me through a rather stomach-churning drop safely (because he’s twice my size), however, my pump managed to fall out of my pocket mid-trick and I had to fish for it with the tubing. Ouch. Mental note – clip the pump to the pants next time.
– My blood sugars have risen to sky high levels (for me)… and have just stayed there. I get so frustrated with the resistance and the micro-boluses I have to administer every 30 minutes that I usually just give up hope and over-correct…. THEN I drop. A lot. My CDE is considering having my try out a different infusion set, as my extended highs seem to occur right before a set change. (Nevermind that I usually change my site if I can’t get the sugars to come down over an extended period of time anyway…) She brought up using the Silhouette. I already hate inserting the sensors of death in at a 45 degree angle. Why the hell would I want to do that for infusion sets too? However, I only seem to be shrinking in my ab area (yay?) thus exposing the years of built up scar tissue in that area. I dunno…
