Ok, I admit it. I'm a diabetic noob. Am I also in denial that I have yet to resign myself to sticking myself regularly for testing? Hell, I hate it when others stick me! Must I now do it myself??!!

I understand the first part of your message and thank you for that. I will indeed look into purchasing them without a prescription. But keep in mind, what is reality in your country may not hold true here. Nonetheless I will check.

hi Michael, I don't think it came easy for most of us. some of us fought it until we realized that the trade off is worth it. if you want to, you will be fine.
