My last couple of a1cs have not been great, and my finger stick tests since the last a1c have not been too good either. I know why -- not eating right (I like a glass, or two, of sherry in the evening, and that just raises the BG overnight) and bolusing right.

I went back on the CGM after a couple of months off of it and suddenly had a great day -- no BG's over 150, and never low a single time. Now I just have to get more sensors -- this was my last one, and it came out prematurely. I stopped because the alarms were bothering me all the time and, since I have a new girlfriend (who is amazing), I was a little hesitant to have the alarms going off all night and have the sensor attached to me (in addition to the pump), decided that I would go without for a while.

A couple more days like yesterday, an maybe I can get that a1c back into a good range again. Lesson, I guess, is diligence (actually, the word of the year at my daughter's school). I have to remind myself never to get complacent. Too many things go wrong with complacency.

This is why I love this site -- instant connection with people who understand, are encouraging and, best of all, "get" how hard this condition is. Thank you, all!
