I am totally lucky.
I was given a Freestyle Lite Meter and a bunch of strips (probably six months worth). Free
The box is sitting on my dresser right now, and every time I walk by I don't think about how lucky I am...instead I feel a bit guilty. I feel guilty because for the past five years I've been very monogamous to my One Touch Ultra2 (kinda bulky meter...but I love him). Just the idea of testing my blood with a different meter is weird.
I know that people change and maybe I've grown apart from my One Touch...but we've gone through so much together. But maybe things have gotten too routine with the One Touch...I mean when was the last time he even asked me how my day was, and last time I got my hair cut he didn't even notice.
And he's always trying to control me. He's really quick to point out when my numbers are high, and I feel like he doesn't give enough praise when I'm doing well.
Maybe we just need to take a break. See how things go. If it's true love, we could always get back together.
