Day 14

Just high-fiving myself this morning as its the second time this week I've changed my lancet! I know it's still not 'as recommended' but I think it's a pretty good effort!

Never again will I be shocked as to why people with T1 don't change their lancets as recommended. It's just another thing to add to the list of things they need to remember!!

So when Medtronic offered me a chance to wear an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor, I was more than excited! For two weeks I will at least physically, and I am pre-empting somewhat emotionally, be a step closer to understanding what it is our type 1 loved ones experience each day. More so, it will give me a whole new level of empathy and compassion in my work.
