The Funny Thing About Dexcom Breaks

I’ve found just as many reasons why I need to continue wearing my Dexcom continuously as examples of decent to sometimes excellent diabetes control.

As much as I miss having access to real-timey data, I don’t miss the constant reminders that things are not “normal”. Of course the days I wake up at 120 mg/dL are just enough of an excuse to delay putting on a fresh sensor for another day.

But, just because wearing my Dexcom is a sign of wanting to maintain a healthy life, choosing not to wear it for an extra day or two is not a sign of giving up. In case that’s where you were going with this.
