Worth it?

This may not seem like a big deal to some/most people, but a peeve of mine is when I’m bolusing, and my bolus is still dispensing, even though I’ve finished eating.

A main reason for this (for me, at least) is that I have eaten too many carbs.  That is my downfall – those darn carbs.

And when I’m eating whatever delicious snack/meal I am devouring at the time, and I take my last bite, then realize I still hear the subtle clicking of the bolus … I start beating myself up.  “Ugh Shannon, you didn’t really need to eat that.”  “Or “If only you’d eaten/bolused for HALF of the meal.”

It’s like it’s a subliminal reminder that I have eaten too many carbs, and I always ask myself “Was it worth it?”

As I’m typing this post, I splurged on a “high” carb snack earlier, and I finished it several minutes ago, yet my pump is still bolusing.  *sigh*

I continue to be a work in progress. 🙂

About Shannon

I am a wife, a mommy, and a Type 1 diabetic (since '92.) I have had two successful pregnancies - one of which was with twins. I wear an insulin pump- - off and on for 17 years; currently on the Medtronic pump and CGM. I am not a medical professional, nor am I giving medical advice. I am just sharing my day to day stories of someone who lives with this disease every day. My ultimate goal is to raise awareness.

  1. Oh boy, I can only imagine the added subliminal guilt that sound adds. Maybe we can figure out some sort of sound-muffling, guilt-reducing case for you to use?
