Bedtime 386 or 348, call it 360. 1 unit = minus 80 points. Bedtime target = 120. 360 – 120 = 240. Do math out loud Bubs double check. (Safety.) Sharpshooter aim 3 giant units. (Would be enough—inappropriately applied—kill person? Feels so.) And wait.
Wait because no Dexcom. Dexcom broke. Out of range all Christmas Day, not self-heal December 26th. Call tech support, explain previous static electricity problem & explain unbent paperclip in secret hole technique and representative then confirm mailing address and plan is FedEx overnight new one. New one scheduled arrive December 27th. Tomorrow. Other side of entire night.
Night so long w.o Dexcom. Starving baby bird (cheep cheep cheep!) plead: feed me, data, data! Without Dexcom only way get data (food, worms) is clamber out of bed (nest?) & see for self, like old times. Hour later. Pop strip can cap, click poke, squeeze, apply, pray, open eyes: 169.
Huh. Not sure good news/bad news. With no arrow, impossible read situation. Dexcom arrow is lodestar. Never had gut instinct until arrow came into life. Try calculate what arrow would be.
Determine points per minute: 360 – 169 = 191 points per hour/3+ points per minute—would be straight down arrow or maybe even double down arrows? Maybe should turn down basal or maybe maximum potency already happen? Try imagine would-be graph.
Think best course action = watch 1 – 2 more Breaking Bad & revisit in 46 or 92 minutes.
Someone comment Meri’s blog today, say pretty much chill out lady. Can’t help but to shake my head when I read this post. It’s not as bad as you make it appear to be. Maybe you need to hear this. I’m diabetic as well. Don’t drown in self pity. I think you give a wrong impression of the illness. Life’s not over. Be positive.
If worth reply/consider this (for Bigfoot) very agitating person can’t get out of head, maybe “be positive” for some is take care, but for other person take care looks like life is over? For Bigfoot “life is over” more like give up, not try hardest. Taking care is let’s kick diabetes in the nuts. Life is over is I give up I am too tired I have already seen all of Netflix and so you and your tender capillaries are on your own; I can not be expected to kick these nuts any longer.
