I was cryin' when I met you, Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Yesterday we gave ourselves and our loved ones a big pat on the back for one thing we are great at. Today let’s look at the flip-side. We probably all have one thing we could try to do better. Why not make today the day we start working on it. No judgments, no scolding, just sharing one small thing we can improve so the DOC can cheer us on!
I keep letting my insulin run out. I want to maximize my use of it-since it's one of the additions of monthly payments I've had to include. Well, that's all fine, but I need to make sure I have enough supplies with me to fill it! I work about thirty minutes from my house, and I nanny for two little girls. So you can imagine that's its extremely difficult to run home and get my supplies, should I run out.
I need to figure out a way to remind myself when I'm running low. And then remind myself to remind myself. It's been such a big adjustment just to remember my meter, my pump, my CGM, my everything. Then add making sure the insulin is in the pump and can get you through the day: Ugh, my memory hurts already.
If you have any suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them. :) Although, I'll still probably figure out a way to forget.
