Somewhat Isolated.

我想我在所有这些开始都更加痛苦。2月和3月,当政府敦促我们重新考虑时,我周围的人仍在旅行。人们正在海外回家,而不是我们政府要求我们的14天自我隔离。作为零售工人,我对父母和儿童的人数和老年人,我在购物中心寻求绝对不是必不可少的购物。

The restrictions imposed by our governments definitely brought with it a massive sense of relief in getting people to take this situation more seriously. Closing our borders was absolutely the best thing our leaders could have done. Mark McGowan has done a brilliant job with state and intrastate border closures here in WA, and I think it’s absolutely laughable to suggest that it is safe to reopen state borders.

作为一个重要的工人,我仍然在全部工作。如果我们不想在工作,我的雇主确实为我们提供了休假,虽然我从来没有真正觉得我无法上班。到目前为止,这是最好的事情一直在看到和与我的朋友在每天工作 - 从健康的1.5米的距离。

My day to day hasn’t changed all that much. Having that workday routine has meant that my diabetes management and blood sugars haven’t been significantly impacted by the situation at hand. I’ve only had to deal with issues related to cooler weather in recent weeks. Although, I would love to be able to find some of this free time that everyone seems to be realising!

留在家里对我来说并不是那么困难。我远离一个不知道如何让自己在家里占用的人。夜晚和周末通常会充满大学的工作,无论如何。虽然我必须承认我感受到了一些机舱发烧,特别是我的妹妹在矿井后面的房间里的家里工作,我的兄弟经常在他响亮的声音中行走和蓬勃发展。我曾经终于想要逃到UNI图书馆或咖啡馆以获得一些工作。有人我一直想要赶上,但还没有能够。

我仍然处理的最大挑战是丧失日常生活。我已经失去了我生命中喜欢的结构和组织。我分心了。但我很高兴能够在一定程度上劝告,以便照顾我的心态。如果我不想学习,或者像我通常会的那样富有成效,那意味着更容易。

外面始终是我照顾我的心态的方式,但我绝对一直在做更多的意识努力。我住在一个实际上有角色的郊区,我的愉快乐趣之一就是在人们的房屋和前院。我相对靠近海岸,我一直在做出更多的努力,每周至少投入一次Trigg海滩。以及一般混合我的小径。

在糖尿病方面,同伴支持总是相对容易找到的。YADC会议和对话正在通过缩放和我们的Facebook小组聊天继续。Doc始终可以在社交媒体上找到。我早些时候撤回了,因为避免了编辑和照顾我的心态。但最近,我肯定会感受到比我越来越频繁地跳跃的愿望。

在WA很难在这里感到不舒服,我敢于我们证明了含有病毒的最大成功。

在限制的情况下,我认为人们通常会比三月更严重地取得更大的。

州边境关闭将让我暂时保持在舒适区,谢天谢地看起来他们会被抬起一段时间。

四年的决定

在过去的几个月里,我泵保修的到期一直在很大地称重。尽管我喜欢我的t:苗条,我准备再犯了四年吗?

我认为是什么使这一决定难以让我不打算将我的泵更新到Dexcom G6和基础IQ在可预见的未来。我使用Rebatteried Dexcom G5发送器,这不会是G6的选项。我真的让我真的让我感到沮丧,尽管在社区下的3,000次强大的典型典型中发出了明确的消息,但这种技术仍然会因许多人而无法实现。我挖掘......

我体重了我的所有选择。我读了博客。我通过Facebook组搜索。我穿着互联网。我认为我们在糖尿病技术中有选择是很棒的,我知道每个不同的系统都会达到不同人的不同需求。

感兴趣的唯一真正的选择是循环的。在夏天尝试之后,我承认它不适合我。此外,Dexcom G5不太可能永远存在,这对我来说是循环的时间限制。但这是另一个帖子的主题。

我不能说我有机会购买另一个Animas泵,但选择一个新的T:苗条是一个相对容易的决定。我对它非常满意,并没有特别倾向于切换到不同的东西。这是现代的,它很小,它并没有像我的animas这样做的那样疲劳。它完美地满足了我的需求。Dexcom G5对该系统来说是一个很棒的补充,即使我能够暂时接受它。

I wanted to upgrade my pump now, for a number of reasons. For starters, at the moment my health insurance covers me for a pump on an affordable bronze policy. I didn’t particularly want to be on an out of warranty pump right now if I could avoid it. Finally, I really wanted to get a new t:slim now, while they are still shipping with G5 integration.

在未来的方面,我相信串联/德克斯康配对绝对看起来是最用户友好的。在市场上的所有系统和他们承诺的更新中,我相信这是我们将在澳大利亚看到的那个。如果我的情况发生变化,那将永远是一条路线的选择。

为了给经销商AMSL糖尿病一些信誉,他们的客户支持一直很棒,他们在过去四年中帮助了我不止一次。他们肯定有“家庭”对他们的感觉,我总是期待着赶上代表(即使我偶尔这样做就像推他们的按钮)。我相信我现在必须是他们最喜欢的客户。

所以,虽然用相同的泵粘贴可能不觉得最大的决定,但绝对是。

应对。

我不太确定正确的词是什么,但我现在感觉有点不同步。

This has felt like the longest semester of uni ever. Which isn’t logical, given that not a great deal has changed for me as a fully online student (except for being ignored even more than we were prior to campus shutdowns…).

Perhaps it’s because I’ve spent the better part of April powering through assignments, because I’m not the kind of person who does well at doing a little bit at a time. More logically, it’s probably due to how much has changed in the world around me over such a short space of time.

我曾经每周两次虔诚地制定两次变化 - 周日早上上午9点,周三下午4点。如今,我发现自己有意识地将它们放在床前我记得。或者,第二天早上。

我的血糖感觉就像一些混乱一样。总的来说,他们只是做了很多意想不到的事情,这需要更多地从我那里输入了。卓越的榜样是睡前围绕的典型上升,纠正,然后在仓库左右的高度警报,当时它再次超出我的高阈值。我不能烦扰基础测试并现在'重置'。即使我真的很想。

我的传感器Dexcom公司将在边缘磨损。我知道我need to tape it down, but I don’t want to spare a moment to cut a patch from my Opsite Flexfix roll. Instead, I’m resorting to keeping my left arm away from the shower hose so that my sensor stays dry until I finally decide to tape it down.

I can’t say that I miss Summer. But I do miss the early mornings and light streaming in from behind the blinds at 6am. It’s incredibly hard to wake up in the dark. I do miss being able to sit outside in front of my laptop working through assignments in the evenings. Last night, I had to concede that I could no longer see my textbook properly by 5.30. Weekdays feel incredibly short.

I haven’t been great at organising my meals of late, either. It’s been leftovers to the rescue this week, including homemade scrolls for morning tea and pizza from Marco’s for lunch on Tuesday. While I’d happily eat scrolls and pizza for the rest of my life, I am feeling a bit of guilt for not having anything more nutritious during the day.

我也不认为我可以从特权人那里采取更赞助的广告,他们不知道我们正在经历的东西,告诉我我们将通过这个。

The brighter news is that my assignments have been submitted for the semester, my weekends are much free-er and upping my basal rates by 20% have largely kept the blood sugars at bay. Superstore is keeping me pretty entertained right now (after years of working in retail, where has this show been all of my life?) The weather forecast for the weekend is looking pretty good, too.

虽然我的日常生活没有受到冠心病的影响,但我认为过去几周的快速变化,同时继续推动生活,肯定以其他方式与我赶上。

So I guess, in a nutshell, this best describes how I’m coping right now.
