okay guys. I’m sure you’re sick of hearing about this by now because everyone keeps posting about it, but there are many diabetics out there that don’t know what glucagon is, how to use it, or how important it is to carry on you. glucagon is a hormone that signals to the liver to release glucose if you’re experiencing a life-threatening low. it really should only be used by someone else and only if you’re unable to ingest glucose orally. for me, knowing that i have glucagon on me and making sure that someone around me knows how to use it gives me that little bit of peace of mind that can really reduce stress in my life—particularly for special events such as concerts, shows, etc. to use: remove the caps from the needle and the vial, inject the fluid from the syringe into the vial, roll the vial between your hands (don’t shake) to mix the solution together. draw the fluid back into the syringe and inject into a muscle (like the quad). i definitely recommend teaching a couple of people you regularly spend time with on how to use this life saving fluid. side note: currently livid because mcdonalds randomly closed because of a system update after I’d already prebolused. Drove off to sonic and it was closed and we had no way of knowing until we’d waited for a while for an employee to come out and tell us. Finally ordered at whataburger but still waiting on the food and stressing about a potential low... 😅

Successful 1st site change with my new pump!! It was a little scary at first because i didnt know what i was doing so i had to have my mom do it for me but im sure ill get used to it soon and be back to inserting my own sites in no time! (I have no choice anyways lol seeing as im going away to college in a month and a half ahhhh) not really looking forward to the cgm change in a few days, im hoping its gonna stay accurate and okay so i can push it to last for 2 cycles rather than just one imeanwhat :p #literallyalreadybreakingthecgmrules #yallarebadinfluenceslol #mytrainersaiditsfineanywaysso #ohwell #wellsee #sitenite #backsite #medtronic #sitechange #thisisdiabetes #t1d #diabetic #actuallydiabetic #diabetes #typeone #typenone #typeonediabetes #medtronicdiabetes #cgm #guardian #enlite #showmeyourpump #jdrf #beyondtype1 :-)
