Jumping straight into another diabetes edition of Friday Five…
1. How can I be 58 and not feel it but the other day at 67, I was moving in slow motion and got my meter and lancet out but not my test strips?
2. I hate it when my lancet accidentally gets bumped from 2 to 4 and I don’t realize it until I’ve essentially hit bone.
4. Bloody sites that still work are pretty disgusting, but I prefer them to the bloody sites that don’t work!
5. I have a pod spot in my kitchen. It’s where I put the failed pods that OmniPod asks for back. One pod will sit in that spot for 7-10 days until I receive the return kit (and replacement pod!). The spot will remain empty for a few days, maybe even a week… then I’ll have a new failed pod to put there. The most recent one, I wore for about 6 hours… it failed at 3:30 on a Monday morning. Ugh!
