Your not always in control

Well.... The new accu check mobile is great.... BUT!!! It does has it's downsides... It's kinda like putting all your eggs in one basket.... If the cassette is faulty then you need a wholennew one.. Not just if on test strip is faulty .... Had to go and replace a cassette today..(after a lengthy discussion with a patronising old bag behind the counter who couldntndo anything with the pharmacist being there... What part of the cassette is faulty do you do not understand!!!!!)... Luckily it was the nice pharmacist that didn't bat an eye lid when he saw me and knew who i was...

Part 2 of the Title... Lesson number 2 always take a spare canular set with you as you never know what's gonna happen..... Woke up at Jo's to find I must have had a fight with the canular in the night and it was half hanging off my belly... Has never happened before..... But lucky I was only 20 mins away.....

And the 3rd part of the title.....
Sometimes no matter what you do.... It don't make sense,,,, sugars read 16mml.... Put insulin in then they are up ???.... Then more.. The they are up again... Then down.. Then up..... And for the life of you you can't understand why.... And what you do have done wrong.... And it does play on your mind... You cant settle... Not knowing if your gonna be to high.. Or to low... I wish it was as easy as you eat this put that amount of insulin in then your sugars WILL be X.... But it ain't ..... Sooooooo just gotta roll with the dice and take itnas it comes....

Should have done a video instead.... Turned out to be a long post!!! ....

Oh happy or unhappy NEUROPATHY week... Especially to my very special Aussie mate Demarco ... And Kate your a true inspiration to me.... Xx

Hi Hon,

"Type 1" "Control" somehow never seem to agree even when insulin is thrown into the mix!!
