Today's post was originally supposed to be about something entirely different, but after spending a good part of the morning at the Apple Store, only to find out that it wasn't a mac software update issue (thank you, JESUS, Buddha, or whoever else you believe in, or not)) but a CableInternetz issue that's still being dealt with on the cable side, (and even after 70 minutes on the phone,) I've changed my mind.
WHY? Because honestly, if insulin pump companies ran like cable companies - We'd all be F*CKED. Because if my insulin pump delivered insulin as slow as comcast's wireless router - I'd be in the ER by now.
And if I had to speak to 5 different departments before I was actually was connected to the right one, and then had to convince them that:
A. It was indeed urgent
B. A technical problem on their end, not the mine (a.ka., the client/end user)
C. It REALLY wasn't my fault
D. That there's no way I'm paying extra because I've had issues with the whole wireless router since I signed up with the company.
My head would literally explode, not to mention my blood sugar numbers.
So instead of complaining about diabetes today, I'm just thankful that my insulin router isn't provided by Comcast.
I'm thankful that my meter only requires a battery the size of a nickel to kick start it back into gear for another months, and months, and months before it needs to be replaced.
I'm thankful that diabetes does not = me not stop from eating anything tasty as long as I count carbs, test my blood sugar and bolus accordingly.
I'm thankful that insulin (while very expensive) exists to save not just my life, but yours!
I'm thankful that the Diabetes On-Line Community has my back!
So can I get an AMEN & a Hallelujah from the DOC Congregation on that my Diabetes sisters and brothers!
Also, if there's anything thing D related you're thankful for, or if you need to vent about something diabetes related or not, go ahead, here's your chance!
