Do I Love My Blood Sugar Meter? Or Hate It?

28 Jul

That depends on what reading it’s giving me! ┬áIt’s easy to blame the little machine rather than hold myself accountable for what I did (or didn’t do) that’s causing the number I’m getting.

Today, I’m going to Catalpa Music Festival on Randall’s Island here in NYC with my sister. And, of course, with my trusty meter (it comes with me everywhere).

So, I’m going to leave you a link to an article that I was interviewed for earlier this year: “Exploring Our Love and Hate Relationships With Glucose Meters” by Amy Stockwell Mercer and posted on DiabetesMonitor.com. I highly suggest you check it out! And, check back in tomorrow for my weekly results and maybe even some fun tips about surviving a music festival.

Are you all doing anything great today? Whatever it is, I hope it’s fantastic!
