I know, I woke up low. No worries, my coffee will boost me right back up!
Yesterday I inserted a fresh CGM sensor and started it up . . . . . and it felt like such a relief! You see, I had been without my CGM for over a week. Somehow I had lost track of how many sensors I had left until I inserted my last one right before I left for Friends for Life. I could’ve ordered a new box right away, to be delivered while I was away, but that seemed like a really bad idea. It was blazing hot out, and I knew the box of sensors could easily sit on my porch in 90+ temps and beating sun for hours until my parents came in the evening to collect the mail and feed the cat. So I decided to wait until I got home to order a new box of sensors.
I lived with diabetes for 30 years before starting on a CGM. So I was unprepared for how odd it would feel to go just one week without it. It wasn’t all bad - I tested a lot more often and I learned to listen to my body more. But it’s still a relief to have my blood sugar graph on my hip and hear the alarms blaring to alert me to lows I don’t feel.
Hello, old friend, good to have you back. How did I manage all those years without you? I sure will keep better track of your supplies from now on!
