Day 5 of Diabetes Blog Week is all about SATURDAY SNAP SHOTS. As in life with diabetes via pictures.
OK I thought to myself, I can do that! All my pictures have numbers, blood, sugar and diabetes of course, as a recurring theme. But I assure you, it's not at all as gruesome as it sounds!
Check out my pics & hope you can relate!!
First thing in the morning means testing & putting my used lancet & test strip in the the big bottle of ALL. This keeps the test strip scatter to a minimum & guarantees I change my lancet at least once a day!
FYI: The above meter is NOT the one I carry on my person all the time, it's the one I keep by my bed.
OK, so at least I change that meter's lancet once a day!
Basal rate testing last Spring meant borrowing a CGM from the fantastical @ Gary Scheiner.
Sometimes things really synced up - Like, I totally felt this low as it happened, and it was amazing (and scary) to watch my numbers plummet!
Of course I very annoyed for several reasons, including having to stop my evening basal rate test, which I was 1/2 through. SON OF A BITCH!
And sometimes things didn't Sync up.
But as we all know, sometimes blood Sugar Nirvana is achieved........
Even when it's not your Birthday! ;)
