Asking a girl on a date, asking Leanne to marry me, and asking someone to be part of your Dexcom Share family of five. I felt the same nerves while asking people all three of these questions. I thought it would be easy to ask someone if they would be interested in following my blood sugars, it was very tough. I'm basically asking these people if they care enough about me to have an alarm go off at anytime. Asking a coworker I made sure I waited until he and I were working alone to ask. What if he said no, what would I do?!?! I'm happy that he said yes and was even more excited when he asked a few questions about diabetes and how the app works!!
I don't know if I should be proud of this but I was at 265 when I got up at 430am. I had planned on riding my bike to work and enjoying a cool Spring morning. I obviously had to take some insulin but couldn't take to much or I'd be low twenty minutes in to my ride. I decided that one unit would be best, I went on to have my glass of almond milk and peanut butter toast before leaving. I would get on the bike feeling nervous but thirty minutes in to my ride I realized I was feeling great. My smile got even bigger when I arrived at work and my blood sugar was at 149. I could have my breakfast and get to work with no problems!! A blood sugar of 88 at 9am had me smiling again as I had covered my post ride breakfast perfectly!!
Below is an amazing video that was put together by inCycle Tv. The video explains perfectly what Team Novo Nordisk is all about and what they are doing for people living with diabetes all over the world. I could write for days about the team but for tonight I will let the video speak for itself.
