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??!!

Glad to help guide you to something that may work for you. Checking your BS is the first step in maintaining this shitty disease and not allowing it to get the best of you. I tell my 6 year old T1D. You have diabetes but I will not allow diabetes to run your life. You will stomp all over diabetes

Seriously one stick. Doesn't hurt that much. Like most have said. Better than being dead!
