Bigfoot need organization guru. Decide maybe if post, shame = motivation fix problem. Difficult imagine how current situation arise. Today another box CGM sensor arrive; yesterday free blood ketone meter (courtesy D-Mom blog). Lucky/grateful these riches but highlight inadequacy current system.
This afternoon Bigfoot take long look. Find three main D-storage areas.
Storage Area 1:
SA1 location Bigfoot/BSpouse closet. Begin w. red garden trug purchased after diagnosis for lancets, syringes, whatever basic few supplies needed. Trug contain everything w. room to spare. Olden times.
Pump era add large Animas supply box under garden trug. Then CGM era add large Dexcom supply box beside garden trug/Animas box. This displace vacuum cleaner. Also: BSpouse promise sell rowing machine Craig’s List by March 30th. Bigfoot notice rowing machine remain in future paradise D-storage with sneakers still in place, as if resume use momentarily.
Storage Area 2:
SA2 medicine cabinet downstairs bathroom. Upon diagnosis, family turn entire medicine cabinet over D-monster. This system fall apart, regular life seep in. Other SA2 issue: metal cabinet w. radiator directly below. Probably too warm sometimes. That why old lancets so comfortable in position: heat absorbers, protect test strips above.
Storage area 3:
SA3 is tiny medicine cabinet, mostly Band-aids inside. Glucagon + frosting tube up top.
Squirrels also put D-things these nutholes:
Pens/tape/stapler drawer (kitchen) = spare pump batteries
Every coat pocket Bigfoot/Bigfoot spouse (assorted locations) = candy
Bigfoot purse = candy, Glucolift, Glucagon, frosting
Top of fridge = Glucolift, candy
Bubs’s backpack = spare meter, candy
Car seat cubby = candy
Fridge = insulin
For closet: two additional red trugs? For matchy-matchy serenity, better than cardboard? OR visit Ikea…some kind of shelf/wire basket system?
Also for closet: could remove all kachunkers from voluminous packaging, consolidate. Ditto cartridges/tubes. Could put Dexcom box in basement w. Ping box, computer box, Cuisinart box (save for need return defective merch—this true? If myth, recycle boxes.)
For medicine cabinet: empty out. Put thermometer inside see how hot when radiator on?
For tiny medicine cabinet: maybe OK?
For purse: edit D-pouch–>coherent. Remove deck of cards or invent D-theory around deck of cards.
Stop. Think. Get rid of Luxura pen. Show gratitude husband use deodorant. Wetnaps maybe belong in car?
