Happy Thanksgiving!! (a day late) Last week, I started the Diabetes Awareness Month Photo-a-Day challenge that Kerri at Six Until Me created. Today, I am catching up on Days 16-22.
The main time I see blood is when I do my continuous glucose monitor. I think I’ve finally figured out how to do it without bleeding but when it happens, it gushes-no fun!
One of the best things I learned from the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) was that I could re-start my CGM sensor to get another 3 days out of it. Before I learned this, I was hating my CGM because I hated having to change the needle every three days. Being able to “trick” the sensor has allowed me to get 6 days out of it and therefore I use it a lot more, which has been great for my diabetes control.
I HATE seeing this. This is the error when my test strip doesn’t get enough blood. Sometimes I get the error even when I have completely filled the strip with blood-grrr.
As long as I have my chronic illness, I will always need to monitor my blood sugar. Hopefully in the future, I will get away from having to test but in the meantime, I go through about 12 strips per day.
I did a clean eating challenge back in September, and walnut basil chicken was one of my favorite things to make that was “healthy” to eat under the plan.
I love Sweet Frog when I’m in the mood for something sweet. 🙂
I am always happy when I see this.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
