Like "Sheila, I have not been testing my blood sugar because I cannot afford it. I am living on my wife's unemployment right now and 350 a week doesn't stretch very far. I was on a government funded program last year that was free but then i married Kathi and my insurance skyrocketed to 67 dollars a month. theres just no way I can buy diabetic testing supplies. So I make due with trying to control my diet the best way I know how. I eat when I'm hungry and when my sugar drops I eat sugar to bring it back up. It's very hard for us poor folks to buy needed food to take care of their diabetes. "
