Today I'm supposed to talk about one d-related thing I do well.
This is hard, especially since I'm still recovering from d-burnout, years later. It's easy to think I'm still doing a terrible job, even though I've lately been discovering that (surprise!) it's not all my fault. I mean, the lack of testing and bolusing during burnout was totally my fault, and re-establishing those habits isn't easy.
But even though I went for spells of never testing, of bolusing once every so many meals, of doing almost everything d-related wrong...I always managed to change out and wear my pump.
Ever since I had it, I've always kept it with me, connected, letting my basal flow. I've always changed out, and only on a few occasions have I not had insulin in the cartridge (the number of instances would be three...maybe four in ten years).
Honestly, it feels so weird congratulating myself. I'm much better at self deprecation.
