Here’s today’s prompt: Yesterday we kept stuff in, so today let's clear stuff out. What is in your diabetic closet that needs to be cleaned out? This can be an actual physical belonging, or it can be something you're mentally or emotionally hanging on to. Why are you keeping it and why do you need to get rid of it? (Thank you Rick of RA Diabetes for this topic suggestion.) Click for the Clean it Out - Wednesday 5/13 Link List.
I have a glucose meter collection. None of them have batteries. I don't have any strips for them. I have a stack of dead meters because... Well, I actually have no good reason to keep them.
Sooooo, that's it then. Yup, I have a collection of used, dead meters. They aren't going to sprout batteries, or grow new testing strips. So, yeah, I, er, have a glucose meter collection, and um, what else can I say about that? Excuse me while I get a trash bag.
Stupid meters. Should have thrown these out years ago. iBGstar. Doesn't fit my phone anymore. What's this one? A meter remote from my last insulin pump? Great. That's useful. Here's a One Touch Mini I stepped on when I was getting the vacuum cleaner. What's this? Some kind of Accu-check...
Man, that post was rough. What did I keep all those for? What will people think of me? If only I could come up with some kind of distraction.
