#DBlogWeek ’14 – Day 6 – Sharply dressed (video)

Here’s 30 days worth of sharps logged and catpured on film in under 3 minutes…a video collection I began last August.  Enjoy!

(Yes, I used two meters – during this month, because I momentarily lost one, an only changed the lancet once in each).


Today’s topic: Back for another year, let’s show everyone what life with diabetes looks like!  With a nod to the Diabetes 365 project, let’s grab our cameras again and share some more d-related pictures.  Post as many or as few as you’d like.  Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures, or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.

  1. I didn’t say “ow” once -

    • Not once? Not even when the pump fell on the ground and ripped out the Sure-T that I had just put in? (And clearly, you must have never felt the sting of a Sofsensor!)

  2. I like the concept of your video. Thanks for sharing it!

  3. Very cool video. Here’s a weird thing I noticed though – even after all the sites and sensors I’ve inserted myself without even flinching, I still winced every single time I watched you do one. Weird, huh?

    • I feel like I flinched at doing many of them too. It may not be apparent due to the speeding-up and editing of the video, but watching myself on the originals was…shall I say…a bit embarrassing?

  4. Ow! Kind of amazing to see the calendar with all of the sharps. I’m also highly impressed with the one-handed Sofsensor arm insertions:-)

    • If I were still on MDI, the calendar would have been much more full! And I don’t use the Sofsensor anymore, thankfully (and hopefully ever again), but thanks!

  5. So flipping awesome!!!

  6. Very cool! I use the luer-lock compatible Sure-T infusion set so those didn’t phase me, but those Sofsensors – I’m glad you’re done with those!

    • How about removing them? During editing, I was shocked at how long it took to remove one of them (towards the end of the video). I think I embedded it at 8x the normal speed.

  8. This is awesome Scott! And how did you plan that 100 mg/dl for the shot?! :-) Very nice!

  9. Very cool video! Even though I use the same CGM and infusion sets, I was still watching the video I was thinking how in the world does he do that…it looks painful. I don’t know why it’s harder to see someone else do it when I do it too. And very cool about the 100! :)

  10. OMG. Dude, this is absolutely BRILLIANT!!! The concept is so very cool. And the unplanned 100, whoa! But I have to ask: Do you seriously keep that kind of calendar when it comes to infusion set changes? I am such a fan of that idea, and have never ever thought of doing that with set needles and old infusion sets… but I LOVE THAT IDEA! Um, yes, and I totally did wince a few times when seeing the stabs and especially that dangling pump. But I even learned from all of that, because you have so many more sites that you seem to use and I need to branch out from the “safe and common” spots on my stomach. Thanks for creating this awesome video, Scott.

    • Thanks so much for the feedback, Mike! There are a lot of small stories behind the clips in the video… I may just answer these questions (and more) in a future post. :)
