First 24 Hours

Technically, it should say 36, but we’ll roll with 24 for now.

I have been doing a LOT of changes. Basal rates, insulin-to-carb ratios, lots of temporary basal decreases. It’s been so WEIRD how my insulin needs change between the t:slim and the Omnipod. I’ve been watching it like a hawk. Bolusing before meals, combo bolusing meals that usually give me trouble, spacing meals out evenly… because for once… it seemed to finally work. I owe that to Tandem’s delivery system I think because of the way it delivers. Does this mean every day will be all rainbows and unicorns? Nope. It’s already proving that to me this morning. BUT I do believe that maybe I honestly do have a lot of work to do. Accomplishing what’s happened was no easy feat, and I realize it won’t happen all of the time, but IF I can somehow get close to it on a daily basis and figure out how my body works enough to make it happen, I’ll be a happy camper.

Before it went away, I snapped a picture. I’m hoping this will give me the encouragement to stick and work with the t:slim diligently. My first 24-hr “no-hitter” in ages…..
