Thanks for the tip about warming my fingers before the using the meter. I forgot about that from our diabetes ed classes and it does help a little.
Let's see...I've tested my sugar four times so far today, used a different finger each time, and now have four fingertips that definitely feel tingly and a little sore.
What I've learned so far:
1) My fingertips hurt.
2) I'm surprised at how many times each day I mindlessly reach for something to gnaw on or drink, and how you CANNOT do that when you have diabetes (and I'm just checking my sugar, not dealing with counting carbs, boluses, etc.).
3) I've already found myself delaying my eating because checking BS feels like work, especially when you're in the middle of another activity.
4) Sloane does a lot less complaining than I give her credit for!
