I really didn’t want to go on my after-work walk yesterday, but I am really trying to make it a habit. Plus, our office manager was handing out Klondike Bars and while I usually say no to such enticements, yesterday I decided to go for it (mistake 1).
I'm not sure what Editor Liz Beaulieu thought when she perused the recent OIG reports on market share of mail order diabetes supplies but I took a look and thought, holy #@%*! It's not that a shift in market share was unexpected, but to see it in black and white was truly eye-opening.
Yesterday, while taking a snow afternoon, I finally managed to connect with Neighborhood Diabetes (who I have actually talked to in the past for stories—kind of cool) that I was referred to by the diabetes center to get the CGM.
I handed back the CGM yesterday and asked "where do I sign up?" to get one of my own. That's because, while I wouldn't want to be tethered to it constantly, the peace of mind—and the guts to more aggressively manage my diabetes—that little black device offers would be worth it. Totally.
