Wow, it has been so long since I’ve posted, honestly I have no idea what happened but a couple of days ago I decided that maybe I should start up again, because I had such a fun time posting. I am now in 7th grade, and am at a new school with new friends and new teachers. I’ve also had diabetes for a year! I cannot believe it, time goes by really fast, doesn’t it?
I’m also doing a walk for diabetes and my team is called Cat’s Carb Counters. (I named it myself.) If you’d like to donate to my team, the link is www2.jdrf.org/site/TR?fr_id
I also designed a logo for my team and I’m actually pretty proud of it!
Oh and I got the Dexcom and the Omnipod! The only problem was that the Dexcom was beeping at school, and what made it worse was the fact that I was at a new school. At my old school, everyone was so used to me having a bag with me, everywhere I went, the bag was always with me and still is, but since I have the Dexcom follow thing, my mom can now see my blood sugar on her phone, the only problem was the fact that the Dexcom has to be 20 feet from my site AND from my phone. However even though my Dexcom was right next to my phone and my bag was around me, it said NO DATA which means, my mom is not receiving my notifications. The first week was definitely something to get the hang of with the beeping and all, in fact, in 2 classes I had to announce that I was a diabetic and that I had all of these electronics on me. But after a while it worked out, and actually telling the class I had diabetes benefitted me, because everytime my Dexcom vibrates (I learned how to set it to vibrate! The beeping drove me crazy!) my classmates know that something is going on with my diabetes, now there are no heads turned to me whenever my pump or Dexcom beeps!
I’m so excited to get back into blogging! Until next time!
