where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Help! I'm at work and forgot my entire test kit at home. Anyone who can lend me one for today? As long as the lancing device and lancet is unused. Thanks!

Yes! Thank you! I was desperate so went to a Bartell's and bought a new kit that came with 10 test strips and a lancing device. Luckily they had one that's about to get discontinued so it wasn't too pricey and was enough to get me through. I also forgot my insulin pen at home, but thanks to eating low carb I was able to get away without having to bolus for lunch and still have good numbers. 😊

It's been a rough month actually. Stress and lack of sleep I believe led me to basically forget my life at home today. I'm just glad I was able to manage, and glad I finally downloaded this neat app after hearing so much about it. 😊
