Remember that time I went to the hospital???

The other day we celebrated a friend turning 30. We went out to dinner and realized the last time we ate at this restaurant I ended up in the hospital...

I love your posts because they are always SO relatable. This exact same thing happened to me! I switched to the Sure T infusion sets to avoid that issue.

Yup been there done that! Except for me, I was newly on the pump and didn't realize that you have to watch for bad absorption. I kept correcting through the pump and my blood sugar just kept going up! I hit 540, was freaking out 'cause I'd never seen anything that high since my diagnosis, and promptly drove myself to the ER. Lesson learned!

If I'm in the 200's and still going up after 2 tests - I always change my pod!

Isn't it interesting how we doubt ourselves before we think of the all of the things that could be the problem. I recently had a shipment of 6 bottles of Apidra that were bad. I struggled for 4 days before I realized it wasn't the pump or illness - it was the insulin! What a joy to now have working insulin. :)
