New site yesterday, another leg one. I’m (was) really enjoying how well they seem to work for me.
Woke up somewhat high. Stayed somewhat high all morning. Had a ginormous carb lunch (that was ordered earlier in the day so, couldn’t change it – and only had half of it) but bolused appropriately, with correction included. Drank water…
Somewhat high went to OMG, really?
Thought about changing the site. But… I don’t keep supplies at work (I will now). Work is five minutes from the house so it’s usually not a big deal to go home. But… there had been an accident on the one road that I can take. So I stayed at work. (Turns out the road was closed for several hours around lunchtime.)
When I got home, I changed clothes and found the inset hanging by a thread with some dried blood at the site.
I of course had no clue since I stupidly never looked at it all day long. Well, I had looked at it (drinking water…, ahem…) but just not closely.
So, remember that bag that I have and didn’t bring with me two weeks ago? I’ve learned lesson #2 and will now keep a stash of supplies at the office.
I had my doubts about this inset yesterday after I inserted it. I should have listened to myself and changed it then.
Maybe that’s lesson #3? I’ve read enough here in the DOC to know that we DO have great instincts when it comes to our bodies and diabetes.
Oh – now – one hour later, 158 with an angled down arrow.
*WP spell checker doesn’t like “bolused,” but it’s okay with “ginormous”…
