Open the Door.
For several weeks, I was flipping open the charging port on my t:slim insulin pump and plugging it in while I was in the shower. But then I noticed the charging port cover was looking a little worse for the wear, and I connected with a friend about best practices. (“Best practices” standing in for “How the hell do you charge this thing without breaking the door off?”)
Turns out the door swivels. And swiveling the door keeps it from ripping.

Well I’ll be (… more careful, more aware, a swivel-er).
(Also, you tell me if “Open the door” as a post title immediately made you think “get on the floor … everybody walks the dinosaur.”
