"I agree, numbers are data. We are not anything based on numbers, just as children shouldn't be defined by their grades or standardized test scores."

"It can't be said enough that numbers are nothing more than data points, as you say BPG, it helps determine what the next steps are. Numbers NEVER define whether we are "bad" or "good", unless you give the numbers that power."

Words are a curious thing they can lift us up or pull us down. We can say something with good intention and it comes across the wrong way. This happens a lot when you aren't face to face with people and are communicating through messaging, emails, and yes the chat room.

A couple of days ago there was someone in chat that was feeling bad about a rather high bg number. Instead of getting suggestions on what they could do to help get it down or the much wanted "hey, that sucks"…

Monday, May 19th will be my 2nd Diaversary. I am celebrating it by having a "normal" Monday complete with work, running with co-workers and some students after work (if the rain holds off) and going to a 3 hour fiddle practice.

Excitement #1: tomorrow I have an appointment to start up my CGM. Fingers crossed that it will help to give me some insight with when my afternoon lows start so I can figure out the correct basal. I live alone so night time lows can be really nerve racking and I hope it will help me to wake up before I get to looooooooooooooow.

Excitement #2: right after my cgm appointment I am driving down to Maryland with my mom and oldest niece to…
