Tales From Odin’s Beard: Broken Record

Yes, this happened.

I say it every time, but that doesn’t make it any less true:

Dexcom. You’ll hate it when it’s accurate. And just as much when it’s not.

I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to fully articulate what it is about this data obsession that is the ultimate double-edged sword, but that won’t stop me from trying over and over again.

Relying on this data, despite the numerous benefits, is one of the most stressful aspects of my diabetes management. I wouldn’t trade my time with Dexcom for anything – besides a cure – but the constant reminders of my inadequacies, the constant doubting of my successes (as few as they are)…at times it’s just too much.

The data this thing provides is overwhelming from every possible perspective.

And yet, it’s made all the difference in my diabetes management. Man, does this disease suck.
