Overnight my G6 sensor was on it’s last legs. False lows and highs along with sensor errors kept waking me up. I had a sensor presoaking for the expiration of my current session this afternoon. Fed up with all the alarms disturbing my sleep I decided to kill it and start the new sensor at around 4am. Groggy from the early wake up, I walked to the bathroom and pulled the sensor to move the transmitter. But oops, I pulled the new sensor!
I put in another new sensor to presoak and restarted the wonky sensor in hopes I could limp through the day. No such luck. The numbers are useless. I’m spending the rest of the day sans CGM. An experience harkening back to the days before CGM’s with just a few finger stick readings per day. It drives me crazy now not having a continuous stream of readings. It didn’t bother me back then. I guess ignorance was bliss.
Moral of the story “Coffee first, sensor start second”
