If you haven't heard, many people give the popular phone/PDA Blackberry device the nickname of "Crackberry." Here is a good description of why the Blackberry earned such a nickname: "CRACKBERRY: Another name for the Blackberry that refers to its addictive nature and the inability of its users to focus on anything else for more than 10 seconds." Another article by ABC compares the Blackberry addiction to other serious addictions like alcohol or drug abuse. There are even rehab programs developed for people with email addictions.
It's been 2 days with the DexCom now and I have to wonder if I can leave it alone for more than 10 seconds... or at least long enough to check my email.
