Arm-sensor placement

Hello, ladies and gentlemen!  I would like to present to you... (drum roll please):

The WORST placement I've been able to find for an arm-sensor (...so far).

Forearm Sensor

The forearm is a terrible place for a sensor!

- It hurts
- It is sitting in muscle
- Have I mentioned that it hurts?
- It gets in the way when driving, working, or pretty much any time you might wish to use an arm rest
- EVERYONE CAN SEE IT, so on a day when you'll be frustrated enough by the bloody thing, you will also be pestered by every well-meaning coworker who has never seen your sensor before and wants to know what it is

On the plus side, that accuracy here isn't terrible?

Argh.

My BG levels are, though (...terrible, I mean). I blame the not-bolusing-for-coffee this morning... Whoops!

Enhanced Enlite: Day 10

It's still going! I was out late last night and forgot to calibrate before I went to bed, so I woke up to a blank cgm graph and a few hours of missing data. I gave it a new cal and so far it's been matching my bg levels pretty well.

I did have to tape it down again yesterday though. We'll see how much longer the new tape lasts -- arm sites tend to go through tape pretty quickly.
