wow! I bet you've seen a lot of changes in managing T1, and the technology to go along with it. I'm going on 25+ years (and I am only 26).

I remember cutting those chemstrips down the middle as well. I had to guess what color was the closest to the different numbers.

28 years but I was 28 when I was diagnosed. And so very much has changed. Mostly easier to handle because of the more precise labeling.
