Meet Wednesday the CGM!

I really haven’t abandoned this blog. I HAVE NOT!

Hello, friends. Life has been a bit much lately. But I’m figuring it out. I’ve been having some super weird stomach issues for like… months… that I was hoping would just disappear but nah… so I’m getting an endoscopy tomorrow and I AM TERRIFIED! And because of whatever has been going on, I haven’t had any energy or motivation or appetite or patience lately. It’s been weird. And physically and very emotionally draining. (I salute you, Orange is the New Black, for making all the hours I couldn’t get out of bed this past weekend much more bearable!) I have some suspicions to what may be going on but I had two dear friends tell me that I “shouldn’t manifest a negative outcome” so… I guess I won’t focus on that. Although it’s been buzzing through my brain for weeks and I can’t seem to shake it.

I also probably haven’t helped myself by working 12 hours days at 2 part-time jobs for the past 13 days straight. Whoopsie!

But in other news! I GOT A CGM. IT’S SO COOL. IT’S SO HELPFUL. IT’S SO 2014. I CAN’T BELIEVE I EVER LIVED WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT MY BLOOD SUGAR IS EVERY 5 MINUTES AND WHETHER IT IS GOING UP OR DOWN AND THAT GRAPH AND THOSE BEEPS!

Her name is Wednesday.

I change her sensor on Wednesdays. And she wears all black like Wednesday Addams. (Ok, that one’s a stretch.) Here’s Wednesday:

As you can see, Wednesday and I were both wearing all black the day I took this picture.

Twinsies.

    Good luck with the endoscopy. Sorry the weekend was less than fun. Oh, and congratulations on Wednesday! You’re going to find it a very valuable tool.

    🙂 Thanks Karen! I won’t know results for 2 weeks…. the medical field is a constant waiting game!

    I’m so jealous! I want a Wednesday, not really for me (though I’d take one), for my daughter. She doesn’t want it and she does have a t:slim pump but I think they’d look cool together and go so well together and give this mom some peace of mind!! And help with hormonal changes, etc. I’m sorry about your endoscopy. I had to have a colonoscopy (spell check doesn’t like that one) 8 1/2 years ago, I waved at them on the way out and said see ya in 20 years. I had a tumor in my small intestine, thankfully not in my colon.
