If you know me, or have seen any pictures of my technology, you will know that I am a Mac user. After spending the first 23 years of my life hating Apple, for no apparent reason, and thinking that people that used Macs are a bunch of dorks, I made the switch to an iPhone several years back and then the conversion took place quickly. iPad and then a Macbook Pro. I do use VirtualBox on my MBP, but I don’t ever use it, because just like with any Windows machine, there are updates and installs I have to do every single day. So, when I don’t use it for 30-45 days, it takes 2 hours just to go through all of the updates.
Without being able to run my reports for my Dexcom on my MBP, I could only get reports when I went to the endo, and that usually only consisted of the last 7 days.
I have an old laptop from my Windows days that I have been wanting to re-install Windows, clean it up and be able to run my Dexcom reporting on there. After about a year, I finally got around to it and I installed the Dexcom software and ran my own Dexcom reports at home for the first time since I’ve had a Dexcom.
As much as I hated working with Windows again, I was just as excited to finally have access to data that I’ve always wanted.
