Well, we are officially 5 days into 2008, and I am enjoying the year! My favorite year thus far.....but I am also a person who lives for the present, so why wouldn't this be the best thus far!?
There are a lot of changes going on in my life these days, but for the first time that I can remember, the swirling world around me does not even phase my mind. Maybe I feel control over my own chaos, that the changes around me are all part of the journey, and I am accepting......quite a nice feeling. Other then this cold that decided to visit, I am starting 2008 with a healthy mind and a healthy body. I really think it is going to be a good year.......
Now diabetes.....I have stopped using the BD link meter. I stopped buying the strips when Medtronic made their announcement that they would no longer be using that product. I finished up the last of the strips, and am now using the Bayer Contour. Being in Canada, I was not involved in the strip recall, but it certainly caught my attention in the news.
I'm still using the Minimed Sure-T sets as well. I enjoy how they do not irritate my skin, and do not leave a mark when they are removed. I wish they had longer tubing options! I know they were created for children, but I know quite a few adults who are using them! Anyone know the best venue to have suggestions heard by Medtronic? I would love to see a feedback section on their website to allow users to make suggestions!! We all have so many, it would be nice to have them heard!!
