CDE appt this week

So I’m meeting with my new CDE this week on Wednesday. I honestly cannot remember the last time I met with a CDE. I had one when I was first dx’d – she always stuck out to me because she was also a Type 1.

I’ve been keeping an old school log for the past two weeks. Have been having site issues with my pump, so I haven’t worn my CGM. Wondering what else to go in with? Not even sure what questions to ask her?

Sad that I’ve been T1 for almost 22 years and I feel like a brand new patient going into this appointment. Part of me wants to go in with a clean slate – show her my info and say let’s start from scratch. I’ve been managing this on my own for over a decade, for the most part, and have never had a “team”.

Anyone have any words of wisdom or suggestions to better prepare me for Wednesday? 🙂

Thanks in advance, y’all!

    Not really advice, but when dealing with my medical team, I feel I need to be able to have a conversation. I should feel safe saying anything, and I should be helped, not judged. Good luck.
