But what's important is that you make one adjustment at a time. and then sit with it a couple days. If you make more than one…"
"My suggestion, Sarah is that you not redo I:C too right now. You have tended previously to react to "problem numbers" by making too many changes at once and then you roller coaster and get frustrated. Just make the small change in your…"

"I have a similar acceptable range: 60-140. But I also treat numbers differently at different times. I prefer to wake up between 70 and 100. Before meals I like to be around 100. Before bed I want to be 80 to 115.
But two things about target goals:…"
"If you are having out-patient surgery taking 30 minutes there is no reason in the world for you to disconnect your pump at all, let alone for 26 hours! That is crazy! I would negotiate that you keep your pump and be tested before after and during if…"
"What an awful week. I tend to have insulin hassles in clusters just like I have life hassles. But usually they are things I can just deal with. Your going unconscious experience was a cut above (below?) the usual. Things where we actually feel in…"

Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.
