With my CGM I feel like that veteran baseball player that is in a groove and one that has gotten out of the early season funk. My set range is smaller than it was just three weeks ago, which means I'm putting more pressure on myself to be perfect. I don't look at that as a bad thing, many people have warned that it may lead to a little diabetes burnout. To that I say I get my diabetes burnout when I don't have a CGM, I'm OCD and a perfectionist, I need to see my blood sugar every five minutes. It makes me a better father, husband, employee, coach and athlete. It also improves my diet because I'm more aware of how the food I'm eating will affect my blood sugar. For instance I will reach for an english muffin rather than a waffle with my breakfast if my blood sugar is close to going above my set range.
As always this is what works best for me. It is important to find what drives you when it comes to managing your blood sugars and your diabetes. For some that might mean a new pair of shoes when your blood sugar is within range all week, or a trip to a sporting event. Whatever it is work as hard as you can to reach that goal, it will make you a better person and will allow you to love managing your diabetes.
