Insulin quality control sucks!

For the first time ever since my t1d diagnosis in 2000 I had a bottle of insulin lose potency.

All damn day yesterday I battled my blood sugar. I took corrections via pump, a syringe and insulin bottle. I could keep it hovering around 300 but not get it any lower.

I've had a 12 hour battle with my new dexcom sensor, first it said I was 53 for hours, (at 10pm) then I calibrated because it almost tipped the insanity scale.  It kept asking for a calibration every 15 fricken minutes and then it FAILED, of course!  Ahhhh!

So I decided to switch back to xdrip+ for a few different reasons.
