I have 2 meters and use them both. The main meter is the one my diabetic nurse hooks up to her PC and down loads the information off of. This main meter, I take my BS at fasting pre-breakfast and pre-dinner. These numbers my nurse wants to know of. I even email them to her on a weekly basis, but she downloads mothtly. Those I am ready to give her. At other times, I use my second meter to know what my numbers are between those times. I have even caught myself with a high number, Took some extra insulin and waited for my numbers to come down, Just so I would be able to post a descent number on my main meter. I think I am not trying to fool anyone since an A1C will tell all and my last A1C was so much better then the previous one. As human animals, alot of us try to be pleasing to others. Show our best side. Even to our medical teams. So my question is, why do I accept that I am not perfect, but not accept that its ok not to be perfect in front of others. Do we all try to hide some part of ourselves that we dont want to share with the world? Even this site, Yes, you can find out where I live if you try, but you wont come find me. I dont have to come face to face with anyone of you. We still retain a certain sense of hidden identity. Its all a sense of ambivalence. I guess it all comes down to the duality of man. any thoughts on this?
