You Know, That Thing?

You know that thing where you've just woken up and done a blood test and you see that you're 222 so you dial up and administer a correction bolus only to find a minute later that your pump site is all bloody so you pull it and red-tinged insulin of some unknown amount leaks back out so you have to totally guess as to how much insulin you just lost and do an injection instead because now that the site is out you're thinking it could be a halfsies free shower morning? (Because your CGM sensor is still plugging along just fine?)

Yeah, that thing. That's today so far. (That, and run-on sentences.)


Update: And then you know that thing where you subsequently get the song "That Thing" stuck in your head, because that's what you named your post for the day? That's happening too.


  1. I can't do much about the site or the 222, but I can help with "That Thing."

    "Hey girl, whatcha doin'? Hey girl, where ya goin'? Who's that girl? Who's that girl? It's Jesssssss."

    I'm sorry, and I love you. Honest, I swear. ;)

  2. I HATE when that happens. It's happened a little less to me since I've switched infusion sets.

    Also, I had no idea what song you were talking about despite my deep love of Lauren Hill's Miseducation. And then I clicked on the link. And now it's stuck in my head.

  3. Wait, what thing..?

    (Oh yea, sorry bout that.)

  4. "halfsies free shower"! I'm so glad I have a name for that now. :)
