I know some people who never, ever forget to bolus. A few years ago I was really bad and used to forget at least several times per month. These days I'm much better and rarely forget.
But this morning, for some reason, I was doing stuff in my room when I suddenly thought, "Oh no, I forgot to bolus for breakfast!"
I had been 6.9 mmol/L (124 mg/dl) before breakfast. I ran out to my meter and tested. It was now three hours later and I was 23.8 (428 mg/dl). Ouch. Definitely forgot to bolus.
I saw my endocrinologist on Friday and it went really well. I love my endocrinologist! He spent an hour with me! We looked over records in detail, but could not spot any patterns. I always find that a bit reassuring. He showed me the Dexcom transmitter and highly recommended I pursue getting one. So I'm going to contact Animas sometime in the coming weeks. He also told me about some supplements I can take for cholesterol rather than trying again to convince me to take medication, which is good. I'll check some of those out. This is the type of stuff I would really like to devote time to when I am done school in a few months, to getting my diabetes and cholesterol under better control (not that my cholesterol is really high, though), and losing weight, and finding some awesome exercise-related goal to do like actually being able to run the Sun Run in 2015.
