Sarah: You should probably talk to your DR or Diabetic Nurse Educator about that situation. Just to be safe.
Frustrations? Are you kidding? For over 20 years. Up - down; Up - down, ad nauseum.
Rip out the Quickset THREE times in one day!
Pharmacy sent wrong strength of Humulin and I didn’t notice til I needed it. I use Humulin RU-500. It is 5 times as strong as most insulins.
The pharmacy couldn’t fill it that afternoon because THEY LET THEIR SUPPLY RUN OUT! (Must be a more uncommon insulin than usual.)
Sugars rose to over 500 the next afternoon. Still no insulin. They were checking with other Serv-U’s and I check with Walgreens.
Ended up in the ER because of it.
Finally got insulin TWO days later. Frustrated?
BUT I will keep at it. The pump has freed me up immensely. And I love the Bolus Wizard. No more fancy calculations on my part!
Hope you have better days. Just go to bed and pull the covers over your head when the world is beating you up. Just kidding. Take a deep, slow breath and stick your fannie out at the target of your frustration. (Works better when that target is human!)
Anyway, hope you smiled a little. Lois La Rose
