Diabetes wise I have had a horrible couple of days battling mountain peaks of BG levels. I had a 2.9 at work this morning which needed a mug of lucozade, 7 dextrose and 2 digestive biscuits to get me back up and staying up in the 6s. It wasn't pretty or pleasant and I don't care for a repeat of it tomorrow. I think it's because I'm up at 5.30am and eating so early - I'm going to experiment with ratios tomorrow morning.
On Saturday I'm heading back to Birmingham for 4 days, on Saturday there is a meet up going on (loosely based around the Diabetes Support forums, but as always anyone is welcome - details are in the forum). Sunday I'll chill out then MONDAY!
Monday, I am going live on an insulin pump. As my DSN is impossible to get hold of, I still don't know which pump I will be trialling - I am hoping for a Medtronic as I have many friends on it and have been able to play with a couple of them, so I'm fairly familiar with them. (disclaimer: Medtronic are not paying or endorsing me).
The Tuesday! Tuesday I am being filmed answering questions on growing up with type 1. It's for the social media team at Birmingham Children's Hospital, where I was treated my entire child life. They are creating some kind of channel (yeah, I know all the details...) on facebook aimed at young people with type 1, and my paed DSN suggested me to the team running the whole thing. I'm looking forward to it!
And that is all for now. I need to get some sleep before work tomorrow!
