Kimberly replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'OUCH!!!! Very painful insertion just now' in the group Dexcom Users
"A few times I've had very painful insertions. I am assuming that I'm hitting a nerve or area around it - I can usually wiggle it around and make the pain go away. But usually I have to endure the pain on and off for most of the sensor…"

"I'm the same way. My morning basal doubles from 0.4u/hr to 0.8u/hr (used to be 1.0u/hr) at 5:30am and continues until about an hour after my alarm goes off (which happens to correspond to when I eat breakfast). And just FYI - my afternoon basal…"

hi kimberly but my friend was already embarassed and in a bad way and I dont think insisting that she cause a scence would have been the best option right then and there . I think we did the best thing we could in the choice to go home and try another flight in a couple of days . well for the trips from now on we will just do Mdi s which is what I do cause I cannot afford a pump . so the best option we figure is that since no one has bothered to return her phone call . thanks for your weighing in though appreciated very much .

Too cool! I wanted to be a robotic engineer when I grew up, but somehow I became an artist instead. Now I am moving back into the technology field once again. Where once tech'y stuff was a hobby and art was my job, I am almost done switching those both around, heh.

Take care, amiga.

I noticed you made the switch to the pump fairly quickly, if you don't mine me asking, was it an easy transition for you?

Hi Kimberly. Pretty cool pics/job. Just thought I'd reach out and say hi and ask if you know Salty & Sweet. She's another ME/Robotics type on the forum. Thought you guys might want to hook up.
