Ok, I guess I'm thinking that since I got everybody confessing and feeling guilty I might as well start the flip side of the discussion by saying that no matter what we do that we perceive as bad or wrong or whatever there has to be some tiny thing we did right. For instance, I exercised today when I could have just as easily not done it. I have changed a lot of bad habits in a short time. My fb is always in the lower end of the 100s. My symptoms are better, and I am able to check my bs now with only one or two sticks as opposed to the 15 or twenty last week and usually only one strip and only sometimes two. It still takes a couple tries to get the blood into the strip and sometimes a couple times mashing my finger. But as frustrated as I still am, I see that I have improved my technique even though it's still a little slower than a sighted person. Darrell says I'm obsessed with it. I tell him it's not even so much about what the number is just getting the result. Right now it seems that once or twice a day is not enough to check if I want to be good at checking my bs. I mean if I want to be good at getting that blood to go where it's supposed to it has to become kind of likeinstinct how to do it. When I can do it in a public place without everybody stopping what they are doing to stare, I know I will have succeeded.
