So I thought of this idea late last year but decided to wait till January 1st to start doing it – I’m going to collect all my test strips for 2014. Sounds weird, you say? Here’s why I’m doing it… I can tell someone “Oh I check my blood sugar 5-8 times every day.” But actually SEEING the strips … puts it into perspective and just HOW many times that means I’ve poked my fingers. Even when I counted what I have in here just so far (only 15 days – and today is not even half over!) kinda suprised even me. (93 so far and it’s only Jan 15th).
Should be interesting to see how full this bowl gets by the end of the year …. that’s a lot of holes in my fingers.
