Hello**** sorry to here about your insurance. Do you have a CGM either way it must be hard to only be able to check once a day.

Walmart carries some strips for about $9 for 50, they are just as accurate because I use to use them all the time. Now I just use them when I run out of my Bayer strips.

that's awful, I can't imagine. I used to have amazing coverage, but with a new job, it's $300 for 1 month of insulin & strips. I don't know what I'd do with none

There is a TOFN (type 1 family network) Central Texas on Facebook. You could join it or see if there is one in Dallas to help connect with families in your area.
