This is the area for those things that just are'nt right. For instance from yesterday to today my Dexcom sensor has been off. If I fingerstick 100 the Dex says 180, if Im 150 the Dex says 260! So, the PG expression is "what in the world?" Normally, I would just call it a Snafu.

Todays trend which is not my actual BGs but the CGMS going nuts.

thanks for sharing jrt! I always find it interesting when I trouble shoot and find the ___ (pump, cgm, insulin, etc.) was not the problem I thought it was. Hope it's a little better behaved for you today!
Whompin' Awful Day. Some of the blips there don't even make mountains -- you have to look close to even see they're there. If I promise to behave tomorrow, will you please not shoot me? Fat chance! I'm going to a music workshop on Sunday, and won't have any control over food choices and meals, so maybe this was to prepare me for the week to come.

Noooooo it's all gonna improve Natalie, the gremlins have to go into hibernation soon!
Had over 200 highs yesterday, no food, for no apparent reason. Today I felt lightheaded before I left PT and was at 48. 70 when I got there and had 4 skittles. The tootsie roll was good though :)

Have a blast Sunday, sounds like fun!

The first high is 50 higher than fs, the rest are real ;( NO idea what happened, tday was way better LOL Ate 55 cho (tons for me, usually under 30). Tomorrow is another day to quote our esteemed founder! The poor Colombian button man is exhausted from running up and down all day.
Set for 80-120.

Yes, that is a bumpy rollercoaster, except for the one elevator up, you still drew in the lines. The Dex looses track of Nate too if he goes up like that quick. Where's your pink skin? Is that a cell phone case? Nate uses Dex's zipper pouch. Hey, I'd love to get your chestnut dressing recipe. Trader Joe's has peeled and cooked chestnuts, thought that sounded good. :)

Hmmm this is the only one I can find, and it's 14.95. Still worth it, maybe more searching would yield a lower price? It's the LG VX8550 Chocolate Verizon Original Pouch with Belt Clip and Wristlet
