another basal adjustment… while I am encouraged overall with the progress I’ve made over the last couple of months with progressive basal rate changes,  slowly creeping into good daily ranges, I can’t help but ask why? why am I requiring that much more insulin daily, remembering that increasing by .05 units/hr over 20hrs is really only 1 unit/day … but it’s one unit that I didn’t need before. why the change? “just because” is common wisdom, but I don’t get it… it’s not like my dead pancreas suddenly got more dead… resistance to the insulin? by that small of an amount? I don’t know that seems to be the only plausible theory, but either way I’m irritated by it,  and by having to make progressive changes, why couldn’t there be some way to know that I would need to go up by .20 units/hr across the board (except for 3:30pm-7:00pm mystery drop time) and just make that change once, why do I have to suffer through months of incremental changes? From a scientist perspective and a safety perspective I understand why, but as the patient, it’s fucking frustrating to have to be okay with incrementally better when it’s still shitty overall… I don’t know how to fix this, but it should be fixed. I’m adding it to the list… fuck diabetes.
