Today in my Anthropology class, my professor was talking about field work and safety. Then we started talking about health care because a lot of places wouldn’t have access to a hospital and he said how most people don’t think about things like that because they aren’t usually thinking, “What do I have to do today to make sure I stay healthy?” All I could think about was that I’ve said that to myself every single day for 10 years.
Tried to put my cgm in yesterday and it didn’t go in. So of course the first thing I do is take a picture (aside from crying and freaking out because I’m a baby). The picture is kind of gross but if you want to see it you can read more.
So tonight I got to meet an amazing musician named George Canyon. For those of you who don’t know, he’s a Canadian country singer who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 14. He has done such amazing things. He’s a spokesperson for Animas, he’s held concerts that were free for diabetics and their families, and he’s always happy to meet other diabetics. He was such a nice person and tonight I fulfilled my wish to meet him. I even got him to sign my pump :)

Ugh so I’m 22 mmol/l and I have a ton of reading to do for my classes but I’m kind of dizzy and I don’t think I’m going to take in any of the information. Whatever, I guess I’ll do it anyway and hope for the best.
So my sister went to test my blood sugar last night because she knew I’d been high, but I woke up, started talking to her, and tested myself. I was 16 so I gave myself a correction and I woke up in the morning at 4.4. The only problem is I don’t remember doing any of this, and I didn’t even know I’d given a correction until she told me this morning.
It’s almost 3 am right now and I have 1.0 ketones and I feel pretty sick and I can’t go to bed. This is the first time I’ve had a higher than normal ketone reading and I feel so awful. I changed my site, took an injection, and am drinking a lot of water. I guess I just need to wait and see now..
So I changed my site and took the old one out. It wasn’t even kinked or anything. Now I have no idea what’s going on but my corrections weren’t working so I figured it was worth a shot.
