[IP] re hearing loss
I dont know your name, and unfortunately I was so far behind in digests I
probably never even saw your original post, and I did not see the insensitive
posts regarding your situation. Please please please don't leave the list.
I have found, after being on the list for over a year, that certain people,
me included, tend to make light of a serious situation, perhaps because we
know no other way to deal with something we know nothing about. I am sure
you will get some serious, responsible answers, because it was an issue we
discussed a few months ago - you might check in the archives, plus some
people ARE way behind in digests.
I do relate to what happened, as I have done that as well...I dont always
hear the "beep beep beep" of a suspend mode or a temp basal when I am dead
asleep. I DO hear the alarm, but that doesnt go off for those reasons
Might I suggest that you program the AUTO OFF feature to alarm after, say 3
or 4 hours? I do this occasionally for two fold purpose: A) it reminds me
during the day that I need to put down my work and go to the bathroom -
something I tend to neglect throughout the workday... and B) help me to get
more sensitive to the sound of the beep beep beep before it goes to alarm.
Yes, when I do this, it wakes me up in the middle of the night...but I can
use the time to test. You might try this, and find that you become more
sensitive to the first alarm - before it hits siren level.
We are all a bunch of jokers...it helps most of us get through the crap we
face daily...be tough. don't go - we can help!
