Diabetes. It’s a jealous mofo and a bit of a drama queen. It can’t STAND not being thought about for a bit (at least, mine is! Maybe yours is less diva-esque?). In the past few months, it’s liked to pop up in a few interesting places and make itself known – just so I don’t forget I have it!
- A lovely big hypo at Châtelet Les Halles – aka where I often change lines and the biggest underground train station in the world. Treating a 1.8 in a wet corridor that smells like urine is living the DREAM I tell you.
- An unexpected HI before digging into galettes with friends. I dosed and ate them anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- Ripping out my Libre when I decided to give my host kid a piggyback.
- Whenever I’m bolusing and trying to speak French at the same time.
- An insistent blocked line alarm on the RER (suburban train). I had put my site on my butt cheek….and I had to prime and reconnect on public transport, so the lucky 09:47 commuters got an eyeful. De rien, you’re all welcome.
- Low battery alarm at 3am in a 12 bed hostel room. My neighbours were not impressed.
- Accidentally ripping out my pump site on a branch whilst sitting by myself in the early morning admiring beautiful views in Glen Coe. The “FUCK!” definitely disturbed the serenity…
- At the top of a mountain in the Scottish Highlands
- At the BOTTOM of a mountain in the Scottish Highlands. One stubborn hypo!
