Stuck On...Me?

In our lives with D, we all carry around A LOT of stuff.  I'm not going to list everything out for you right now (that's coming in a later post).  But there is an atypical item always rolling around in the bottom of my purse.

3M Transpore tape.  


Allow me to explain.  Since I started wearing CGM back in December, I have tried it in various locations on my stomach, back, and butt.  No, I haven't worked up the nerve to try it on my arm.

The spot that seems to work the best is my butt.  Especially the side butt (stop and read Jacquie's post please--hilarious!).  The problem is, my jeans really rub this area a lot.  I always use IV3000 tape to hold down the sensor and transmitter initially.  But after a day or so, the tape starts to come loose thanks to my jeans.

Hence the Transpore tape.  It holds that sucker down.  And not even my jeans can pry it loose. 

It was a happy accident that I discovered this.  Not long after I started the CGM, I was in my mom's office, my tape had come almost all the way off, and I didn't have any more.  Luckily, my mom had some Transpore tape in her desk.  It worked beautifully.

So it's always rolling around at the bottom of my purse.  Thank you, Transpore tape.

*3M did not ask me to blog about their product.  They have no idea I'm writing this.  I just wanted to share something that works well for me with all of you.*

  1. Going to buy some of this TODAY! Maybe it will fix my CGM-won't-stay-on-for-more-than-24-hours-anywhere-I-put-it woes. =)

  4. I use this tape as well to hold things to my arm and other things. It truly is some of the greatest out there, not to mention the fact you can tear it by hand as well.
