Hi Colleen. I just read your DBlog, "It's Sunday, Finally!".

About this quote: "I want us “Elder Bloggers” to keep on blogging. We need Medicare to support our needs, and not be happy if we just die. We need you younger bloggers to support this because, one day, it will be important to you." I'm 83 y.o., and completely agree! Granted, I don't write many blogs, but I like having a place (TuDiabetes) to sound off now and again. I've written some poetry on the No-Sugar Added Poetry page also. When I was first diagnosed, I started reading blogs on the DOC--including yours. My earliest education on D. Cheers!

They call me catfish Kay as I have been a listened fishing guide since I was 27yr old and am 72 now and still fishing. I'm T2 since 2005 and tried the CGM and don't have the time for all that calibrating junk.It's bad enough to have the infusion set but I've gone a week before changing as I didn't want to waste insulin and changed when my insulin run out. I also didn't have the finances to pay for the $300.00 refill of resevoirs and infusion sets every  3 mo. I got assistance so changing every 3-4  days now but when your A1C is 5.7 I guess it didn't  hurt changing sites every 5-6 days.I think it's a money thing for the manufacturers if you ask me when your A1C stays that good. I'm also a Med  Tech so could keep track of all my lab. No,you can use the sets more than 3 days and the resevoirs.  Catfish

Ha ha! I am sure you will have no trouble finding it! I had a message earlier from our friend Briam Piccolo! We were just talking about him. He has started using a DexCom. I hope it is as useful for him as I have found it to be. I am on day 13 with this sensor. The tape on this one is starting to peel. i will definitely not make it more than 14 days.

On the Dex for a week to see what mistakes I am making and for the life of me I can't seem to get the BS down. I have to use an injection for a correction. DRIVING ME NUTS.....

How have you been?
