Last Friday I received an email from Tandem Diabetes and Dexcom reminding and instructing me on changing the time of my diabetes devices in accordance with daylight savings ending. My cell phone (and phones used for Nightscout) update their clocks automatically. It took a solid 20 minutes of metaphorically banging my head against the wall before consulting the instruction manual on changing the time of our microwave. I’ve adjusted various clocks throughout our apartment as I’ve encountered them over the course of yesterday’s activities. I change the clock in my car on the way to the grocery store.
And yet, I can’t help but feel like I’m forgetting just one more clock. And by the time I figure it out which one I forgot, March 8 will be right around the corner.
Is keeping a running list of clocks an ordinary response to this potential dilemma?
Or should I just enjoy the part where sunsets happen at 5:00pm?
