I really love a rainy Friday. No joke. When I first learned of the Blue Fridays Initiative through Cherise Shockley’s tweets, I believe my first thoughts were along the lines of, “That’s cool. Oh wait, I don’t own blue clothing.” Blue jeans? Yep, but that’s about it. When I decided this winter, after years of soaking we feet, that I should indeed buy myself a pair of boots, the blue ones happened to be on sale and hey, they’re perfect for #bluefridays (follow it on Twitter). Now, less than a year later, I carry a ridiculously bright blue purse and my Dexcom G4 is blue too. Sometimes feeling blue is actually a good thing. I will admit, there was a Blue Friday a few weeks ago that turned out to be a Blue Thursday. I swear it felt like a Friday!
Blue Fridays can also be found on Facebook.
Clockwise from top left: Imagine my surprise when I received a thank you gift from Excedrin in the mail! I was a little confused about the part that thanks me for my “patience”. Was there an Excedrine shortage or something? Maybe it’s thanks for being patient during a migraine for the Excedrin to kick-in (like I have any other choice)? Any way you look at it, it’s nice to get free stuff. If any diabetes device or pharmaceutical companies are listening, I like free, surprise, thank you gifts.
I’ve had 2 days and 3 nights of too many low bgs. Last night I had the actual LOW reading on my Dexcom. It was scary, it was there for a really long time, and even when I started to come up, it was snail-pace slow. I joked yesterday that Glucolift tablets are becoming a food group in my world. The real joke is… I’m not joking.
Happy Blue Friday! New blue shirt, blue Dexcom and sort-of bluish glasses.
What do you think that last photo is from? Awful finger prick? A girl who’s using a very blunt lancet? Nope, got my finger tip caught between and anvil and a rubber mallet the other night. It really does look like a D injury though doesn’t it? Gotcha!
