Habitual contempt

Bigfoot hit wall today. Feel no more can calculate insulin ratio, no more can remember not go directly shower after injection, no more think tantalizing way offer banana + peanut butter, definitely not able view recommended Animas insulin pump DVD. Maybe hungover? Maybe feel better in morning?

New keen interest in scientist Shawn Anchor. And today enjoy Helvetica. (Movie about font.) Graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister have poster in studio, long list rules live by*. One rule grab Bigfoot eye: Habitual contempt doesn’t reflect a finer sensibility. This very upsetting. Make Bigfoot realize insulin math not go away, even in face of loathe. Need figure out way do necessary thing, circumvent hatred of thing.

*Other rules: Hiding your motives is despicable. Humanism is obsolete. Guilt and self-laceration are indulgences. This menacing poster not star of film.

    This is my favorite post of all. Read listening to Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt 2. It was perfect.

    One thing I love about the bolus calculator on the OmniPod is that I don’t have to think about the math of diabetes a gazillion times a day.

    When we were still on injections, I made a chart in Excel that listed every single blood sugar and what the correction for that blood sugar was.

    I also had a similar chart for carbs. It had a column for each meal time since her I:C ratios were different depending on the meal.

    The charts were on the fridge for easy reference.

    At meal time we would just look to the chart for her blood sugar and carbs, et voila, math is done, no calculating.

    Do the math once, make a chart, spend that extra 30 seconds you saved thinking about travel to exotic locales.
