One of my biggest fears has always been needles and blood… Now I'm expected to take 4 shots and poke
My finger 3 times… Ugh!!! I actually can give myself a shot but testing my blood sugar is oddly hard for me… I got comfy with the insulin and just over looked testing but obviously I have to see what all these shots are doing me any good… I'm so overwhelmed… On a good note… I woke up early today and did some cardio!!!

There is something that you can get that you put on your belly or leg etc and it takes your blood sugars for you as and when you set it so you don't have to 'poke' your fingers, you do have to change it every couple of days but that's better then 3 tests a day. I'm not sure what its called though but I'm sure you will find it online or if you ask your doctor about it or maybe even someone on here knows what it is called.
