Why do the most accurate CGM sensor sites also have to be the itchiest?
Why do I only start to drop low after I've brushed my teeth?
Why can't Dexcom covers come in colors like aqua blue, orange, green or purple?
Why, on the nights I most need sleep, does Jim decide to make stuff up about my blood sugar and thusly wake me up every half hour with a BRRR BRRR BRRR BRRR! from the nightstand? (That's my impersonation of him vibrating, by the way.)
How is it possible that I can access the internet from my phone, but I can't access my basal rates from my meter remote?
Why do the Animas cartridge needles make my Humalog bottles leak drops of insulin while I'm filling them? (I've learned recently that I'm not the only one this happens to...)
Why do I sometimes feel like I'm dropping low, when I'm really not?
Why, when I get sick, does it take me three weeks to recover, instead of the three days it appears to take everyone else?
Why can't I keep myself from smirking when the nurse giving me my flu shot says "This might hurt a little"? (And why do I almost always feel the need to tell her that I'm used to it, because I have diabetes?)
And why does the world not yet have an integrated Animas/Dexcom system?!
