What am I talking about?? Changing my insulin pump infusion set, that's what!
The first time was early yesterday afternoon when I realized that my infusion set of three days wasn't absorbing the way it should be. That happens every now and then, so it was really no big deal. I changed it and continued on.
The second time happened late yesterday afternoon when I was running out the door and said infusion set looped around a doorknob and ripped out! Again, that's happened before and I went about the business of fixing my mishap
The third time was my really my fault, in my haste to put in a new infusion set and get on with my day, the sticky sticker part of the infusion set somehow folded over so that there was a hugeunsticky part (are you following me? ) that I knew would never stay stuck, so I had to start AGAIN.
Wait a second, that's the third and fourth time right there. HOLY GUACAMOLE, that means that 5 minutes ago when I got up from my desk and my tubing became tangled in my chair's armrest was actually the 5th time in 24 hours that I had to change my infusion set.
OK, it's official! just call me Molly Moretic The Moron Diabetic , or MORON, OR moron pwd/Diabetic WHATEVER. I'm having a MAJOR case of the Diabetes Stupids! And I feel terribly uncoordinated and extremely dumb right now.
Just tell me I'm not the only one whose ever had The Diabetes Stupids, PLEASE. With copious amounts of carbs on top!
