Need any type of diabetic suplies? I've got like 2or 3 meters, lancets, & some needles for those of you who are on isulin. If you pay for your diabetic supplies out of your own pocket & need supplies, drop me a message in my inbox and let me know. I will gladly pay for the postage & handling. My name is Annalease.

I just want to let you guys know that you have to be very careful with this kind of thing. If your insurance paid for the supplies you're giving away or selling, it can turn into a big problem if you get caught.

I don't mean to put any kind of a damper on people helping out one another. And if these are supplies that you paid for out of your own pocket, then you're fine. But you truly do risk losing your insurance if you are caught selling or even giving away supplies that your insurance paid for.

Just wanted you to know.

Thx John. I was not aware of that. But these supplies were given to me by a friend who's husband paid for them out of his pocket. My friends husband has been deceased for the past 4 years. I can't use them, due to the fact that I get all supplies free from my insurance carrier.

I agree with Mays…and for you to offer to pay the shipping and handling as well is very generous. God bless you.

Also, I may even have some test strips. (I'd have to go take a look see)

That is so very thoughtful and kindhearted of you!

Thx MAYS. I know that times are EXTREMELY tough, w/people losing their jobs, and the health insurance usually goes as well. And the supplies aren't doing any good sitting in a box in a spare room. So if you even know someone who's a diabetic & is down on their luck, just lost their jobs, health insurance, just drop me a line in my inbox and if I am able to, I'll be more than happy to oblige.

Annalease, both you, and Harlen are godsends to this site.
I say so because in the past, Harlen has also done what you are now doing, willing to part with diabetes supplies to help others who are in need of supplies.

In the past, I have received a blood glucose meter and test strips from Harlen when I was in need of such and I was truly amazed at his unselfish genorosity, as I am now impressed with yours also.
This is such a wonderful site, with such wonderful people such as Harlen and Yourself.
May the two of you be blessed beyond measure for your compassion towards others!
