I really don’t have those days/weeks very often. Where I feel all I do is wrapped up in handling my diabetes. Where I am hype-aware of how everything effects me, to the point I begin to see causes that probably are not there. That has been this week. And I blame this guy.
I do! I really do. He has made me hyper-aware and I don’t like it. He’s had some calibration issues and that hasn’t built the trust up very well. I have had two or three calibrations where the number was within 5-10 points, all the others have been at crappy times where my BG was ridiculously un-stable. My BG numbers through my meter haven’t necessarily been bad, I probably would think nothing of the last couple of days if it weren’t for the craziness that is the CGM.
I’m not ready to give it up yet, but so far it has not really helped in anyway — just brought frustration.
I am sorry for all you readers who were thinking about Dexcom and then read this post. Don’t make a decision based on this post! It could be a myriad of different things unrelated to the Dexcom and I am not convinced it’s a horrible system. I just need some time to learn its personality…right now it doesn’t have one.
