You know the saying, "you would forget your head if it wasn't attached." Well, same pretty much goes with, "you would forget your pump if it wasn't attached." This is very true - when my pump isn't attached it's pretty easy to forget to re-attach it.
I unclip my pump when I have a shower or when I change and sometimes, you get that little feeling of freedom and forget all about your pump! Well this happened to me last night. It wasn't until I woke up at about 7 a.m did I realize, "hey my pump is on the desk!"
I probably went to bed around 3 a.m so for about 4 hours I was pump-less and you would think my sugar would have been high being without insulin for that many hours, but nope! I was a nice 5.6 when I woke up at that time.
So, I know it's really bad that I wasn't wearing a pump for four hours, but this makes me believe that I possibly still have some insulin on board... maybe I am not fully diabetic yet? who knows!
