My endocrinologist’s office is about 2 1/2 miles away from my work. I appreciate how easy it is to get to when I have appointments. The only problem is that it is in a very urban area so it takes about 20 minutes to get there.
I really shouldn’t complain – the first pic is the view from right outside the office and the second is a satelite view of its location (the blueish-green area on the right is water :).
Anyway, I went down the elevator and waited for valet with an older woman who was there for fasting labs. I gave her directions to Dunkin Donuts so she could get something to eat after fasting! 🙂
She started up a conversation as we were waiting for our cars. She asked why I was at the office (um, “none of your business” was my first thought) so I told her I have diabetes (actually I said I am diabetic but I am trying to be PC here). She said she was too. She asked if I had the pump and I told her I did. She said she was too and had the pump too (kinda made the Dunkin directions ironic). She asked how long I have been diabetic and on the pump (4 years/3 years respectively) and she said she is in her 70s and has been diabetic since she was 23. And she looked GOOD! No visable complications – I don’t think she even wears glasses! I was very impressed and motivated. It was a good way to brighten up a very frustrating morning!
Now the question is do I still wait to start the Symlin?
Anyone tried Dexcom?
Is there a reason why Blogger formats the text however it wants no matter how much I adjust the spacing?
