Just like everyone else that wears a DexCom 7+, Arden sleeps with her receiver. Lately, I’ve been noticing that she holds it on her chest while she sleeps. My initial reaction was sadness but as the days pass I’m really beginning to love the fact that she does this.
There are a ton of inconveniences that come with having type I, sleeping with a piece of electronics might be the least of them. Today I made a choice, a choice that we can all make; I’m not thinking of these things as “inconveniences” anymore.
There are days when I’m so busy that eating lunch feels inconvenient but no matter how busy I am I never get upset about having to eat lunch. That’s the lesson... weather it’s sleeping with electronics or having a sensor stuck to your butt these things are just “eating lunch” for diabetics.
I thinks it’s all attitude and perspective and we can all do this!
