Let's be honest here. Not all of us take care of ourselves as well as we should. So, confess! Have you ever:

-Skipped a shot by accident?
-Skipped a shot on purpose?
-Had an almost fatal low?
-Passed out / fainted / had a seizure because of a low or high?
-Not checked your sugar for long periods of time?
-Used your diabetes as an excuse to get out of something?
-Made up numbers to fill up your logbook?
-(For people whose doctors actually go through their machines) Checked your sugar, changed the ti-me and date, then checked it again?
-Gotten really angry and yelled at a doctor who told you you "weren't trying hard enough"?
-Made up an excuse so your parents would re-schedule your appoinment with the endo?

I'm curious, because you would never admit to this stuff with your parents or doctor, right?
