#DBlogWeek - Diabetes Blog Week - Favorites and Motivations

(Again sorry this is late)

Im not sure I have a favorite blog post that I have ever written but I know I have a blog post that has seemed to have helped a lot of people.  

This post: Diabetic Warrior Dexcom and Opsite Flexifix tutorial Has seemed to  have helped many people as I get told over and over again how helpful it was and for me this tape is the best stuff ever made.

I am somewhat sensitive to adhesives, almost all of them give me a rash of some description.  If I wear a band aid for more than one day I get an awesome red rash.

I can wear Smith & Nephew Infusion Set iv3000 around my insulin pump sites (anywhere) and my Dexcom sensors 100% of the time get Smith & Nephew Opsite Flexifix(this is the 4" wide, I use 2" wide but I can't find it) under them and then after about a week also around the top of the white built in tape.

Tape doesn't like to stick to me.  I have tried many many many combinations and I am allergic to skin tac (figures since it works so darn well) and tough pads are falling off me in a matter of 1 day.  I move around a lot every day, I sweat pretty easily thanks to hyperhidrosis (I have too many sweat glands, yeah its great) and I apparently have weird skin. 

So for me this is what works to keep the dia-junk on me that I have to wear every single day. It may help you as well, but it seems that a lot of trial and error and money spent are how many people figure out what works best for them.





Topic for Saturday: If you have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blogpost that you have ever written?  Is it diabetes related or just life related?  If you are a new blogger and don't have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog?  (Thank you Laddie of Test Guess and Go for suggesting this topic.)
