"You are not alone. Just remember there are a lot of us in the same leaky boat . I have a huge advantage - my daughter (step-d actually) also has diabetes. She and I support each other a lot. Bad words are involved. But it is a huge help. Have you…"

daricel commented on Katherine's group 'Diabetes Burn Out'
"Welcome... I think most of us have found that there are different things that work for each of them (I know not much help, huh?)... However, I've been on this roller coaster for 28 years now. It helped me to think of the long term vs. the daily…"

daricel replied to Donna's discussion 'Diabetes in senior years' in the group Pumping Seniors
"I know that some folks who were having trouble hearing their CGM alarms talked about putting the monitor in a bowl full of pennies or marbles and setting it to vibrate. The extra things around it amplified the noise. I no longer wear a pump or CGM,…"

SpeckleParkMatters replied to daricel's discussion 'Thinking of dropping the pump and going back to shots. Has anyone done this?' in the group Diabetes Burn Out
"I too can relate. I was on the pump and CGM for almost 2 years and in the beginning it was great- gave me more consistency and independence but then my IR started to worsen and things slowly degraded. My sites would get infected or not absorb…"

daricel replied to Stuart's discussion 'Define this "burnout" ????' in the group Diabetes Burn Out
"It seems that way for me... I'm following every rule and then something comes up (dramatic event, work stress, ...) and I slip a bit. Then a bit more and I'm so busy coping with life, that the diabetes care falls by the wayside. And I…"

"Welcome Paige. So glad we can be here to help you. I have a step-daughter with diabetes also. She was diagnosed at 13, I was diagnosed at 27 (when she was 11). We've helped each other so much over the years - it's good to get the reminder…"

daricel replied to daricel's discussion 'Thinking of dropping the pump and going back to shots. Has anyone done this?' in the group Diabetes Burn Out
"So far (it's been 6 months) my control without the pump is better than it was with. In the beginning I was doing great. But after 10 years, the scar tissue in all the areas ok for the pump made the absorption inconsistent. It also doesn't…"

Steve D replied to daricel's discussion 'Thinking of dropping the pump and going back to shots. Has anyone done this?' in the group Diabetes Burn Out
"Daricel- I did. Quit the pump (Omnipod) completely. Was back on MDI for two months. It was Hell. I was so out of control and had a maddening Insulin reaction just last week. Went right back to the pump, and will never do that again!"

shelbot replied to daricel's discussion 'Thinking of dropping the pump and going back to shots. Has anyone done this?' in the group Diabetes Burn Out
"I just recently made the jump from my pump back to shots. So far, it has been a struggle to be honest, but it has been the sort of "break" I was needing. It is hard to be on the shots, having to worry about them constantly. I feel I lost a…"

Great to meet you! What a crazy, small world!

MarieB is right - I wear a CGMS, but it's not the Dexcom. I opted for the Navigator and I adore it. 2 years now. But the company is having all sorts of problems that I'm currently riding out. Dex looks a lot more stable!

We should meet up some time. I have an 8 month old daughter that will likely be along for the ride, but if you ever want to grab coffee or lunch, let me know.
