So I finally got the cgm taken off today. It was an interesting 5 days...I wrote down more in a week then I have in awhile with my logs for foods..usually I just do it on my phone..but they had to have handwritten! (rolls eyes) lol All in all it wasn't too bad wearing it. On day 3 it started hurting a little bit in the morning but since that day it worked out good and didn't feel anything. Heck I was having more issues with my pump set then with the cgm! lol So it kind of hurt when they took it off because of that second skin stuff they put on...that stuff sticks for sure! Anyways, I find out on the 10th what my trends were...can't wait..wish I knew now! very anxious to find out.
So I got mixed feelings about the cgm. I think it's a good idea and all..although I'm not sure how I would feel about having it on just because it's another thing that is on me...I was able to sleep really well with it on..and it did kind of give me peace of mind even though I couldn't technically look at it..I wish medicaid would pay for it..but for now they won't..but right now I'm ok with that...maybe eventually they will when I will actually need it..I mean right now I'm pretty good at spotting my lows and highs for the most part...but after awhile I guess you have a harder time telling the symptoms?...so maybe by then I'd be able to get it... I still don't see why they think it's experimental and "not such a good idea"..thats what they said about insulin pumps awhile back and now it's amazing having it...my numbers are they best they've ever been... :)
