I haven’t had my Dexcom for a whole year and I truly appreciate having it by my side.
I was beginning to feel like one of “those” couples. You know the ones… They color coordinate their outfits. They always stand next to each other at parties. They go everywhere but the bathroom (and who knows?) together. It’s like they’re glued to each other.
I started using Dexcom last July and it stayed by my side at all times. Unless, of course, I forgot it.
Winter was okay – most of my pants and many of my sweaters have pockets. At home I’d wear my Outer Banks pink hoodie and the machine stayed safe in the pockets.
Well, spring finally arrived and I’ve spent the last three days picking the Dexcom up off the floor as I just don’t have the pockets.
So, today at work, I put it on my desk. And left it there. I did not take it to the copier, or another office or – the bathroom. There’s a few blank spots on the graph but not enough to worry about. Night time, yup, it’ll be there but when things seems pretty steady during the day, I’m not going to take it with me everywhere.
I think the Dexcom needs a “pause” button. And then, an “unpause or I’m back” button.
I’m quite proud of myself for giving up on the ALWAYS relationship.
