What do you do on a Sunday afternoon? I take fifteen minutes to insert one needle, because it’s BIG AND IT STILL SCARES ME. I have had type 1 diabetes for five years and needles still scare me every time. My hand shakes and my chest gets all tight, I’m so silly. The irony is not lost on me, I assure you.
My educator has flagged me to try a CGM for free in a few weeks and I am so excited! Exposure to something I will never be able to afford, and a way to track my levels and find out why I have such crap insulin resistance? Yes please!
