Ugh, it's Monday morning. I can certainly do without Monday mornings, especially chilly ones like today. So please allow my crabby self to indulge in some serious griping. (Would that make me a complex crab??) Is it just me, or couldn’t you do without . . . .
. . . gushers?? I pulled my site during yesterday’s site change and ended up with blood down my leg, all over my hand, and in a huge splotch on my favorite pajamas.
. . . huge blood sugar spikes after a healthy meal?? The other day I had one slice of low-carb whole grain toast, a piece of low-fat cheese and 15 grapes for breakfast. And I spiked so high you'd have thought I ate a big plate of pancakes.
. . . needing to change your CGM sensor when it is reading perfectly??? It makes me really sad to have to yank out a sensor that is working really well.
. . . exercise?? Okay, okay, I know exercise is a great thing. Some people even enjoy it a lot. I guess I just wish I was one of them. For me, it always feels like torture.
. . . dead batteries?? It always seems my pump’s battery decides to run out of juice just when I’m falling asleep.
. . . middle of the night lows?? I’m usually pretty good about not over-treating my lows. But all bets are off when my meter flashes a reading in the 40s at 1:00 a.m.!!
Come on, don’t leave me here griping alone. What could you do without??
