I have sent out three emails so far inviting people to follow me on Dexcom Share. All three of these people are very good friends, I'm still nervous about sharing my blood sugars with them but know that it is for the best. I know that one of these friends will give me a very hard time if my blood sugar goes above 200 or below 60, he will also be very upset when I'm not wearing the sensor. I have gotten to a point where peer pressure is the best thing for my diabetes, I need people to get on me for my blood sugars. These three people are close friends and have never given me a hard time for my blood sugars. That is what makes me so happy to have them follow me, these people are not like my parents or Leanne. I'm sure that I will not word this correctly but when they say something it seems to be that they are nagging me. That is because they are the ones I see most. They know how I get when I'm low or high and are always telling me to test. Having friends follow me is cool because I don't see them everyday, they are allowed to give me a hard time.
That brings me to the current situation that Leanne and I are having. I refuse to let her follow me, that sounds horrible but is true. I know how Leanne is, she loves me more than life itself (I know it doesn't make sense to me either) if she has the ability to see my blood sugars 24/7 she will be checking it every few minutes. If I was in her shoes I would do the same, I can't imagine the worry she feels all the time. I believe the best thing for us is to have Leanne follow me whenever I travel. Right now that is very rare but could be more frequent in the coming months, time will tell. I have no problem with her following me when I'm traveling, if I'm alone in a hotel it just makes sense. I don't want to explain why but I think we all know why.
I'm just happy to have Easy Ed back in my life!! I can't wait to be on the bike at 5am tomorrow and know exactly where my blood sugar is. The sharing is a great feature but is a luxury, I just want to be able to see my blood sugar anytime of day.
