|I'm going to my Happy Place.|
I'm also kind of freaking out about the new TSA security procedures. A little bit.
The last time I flew, I had some good and bad experiences. I've read through the TSA's guidelines for people with diabetes, and I'm coming up with a gameplan to make this process as un-lame as possible - I'm planning to disconnect my pump when I'm in the security line, and will put it in the huge ziplock bag of d-stuff that I'll ask to be visually inspected/wanded/whatever. Since my Animas pump is mostly metal, I know I can't get through the scanners with it on, so I'm not even going to try.
I'm also fairly confident that my Dexcom sensor is going to set off the scanner, too, so I'm preparing myself mentally for that creepy full-body patdown. (Fun!)
Add into all of this the lack of sleep I'll be getting, as we're flying out at 6:00 am, and the part about how my glucose level drops significantly in response to anxiety (I already had to start decreasing my basal rates on Tuesday, when it actually "hit me" that our trip is this weekend already), and it's sounding like a pretty eventful morning.
But totally, totally worth it.
