Veteran’s Day is a floating holiday for my company. Because of the timing of various extracurricular activities, I decided to use one of my two allotted floating holidays on Veteran’s Day. The plan was to record, edit, post and pimp Just Talking (Episode 4 had Kerri in it) and then complete the single player campaign of Modern Warfare 2 as quickly as possible. Aside from starting the game a little late, I blazed through the campaign in 5 hours 15 minutes. I spent the rest of the day either sleeping or playing Multiplayer with members of the Talking About Games community. Good times. As a result, I’m still uber tired and I don’t have anything particularly inspiring to write about. So I’ll offer a quick update to a previous post and leave you to the rest of your day.
I had commented on how awesome it is to see the War Zone of my (our) finger tips and how I have this thing for not testing on my right hand. It’s pretty lame, that’s me. Last night I finished the last of my current bottle of test strips and can confirm that my right hand was used for each test. I have to admit there were a good number of times that I would have remind myself after loading up the lancet in my right hand for a left handed test. Oh yea, I’m dumb. I guess with Diabetes you have to take the victories as they come, no matter how inconsequential.
Of course the more important victory would be that I am consistently testing. Right now I’m doing this for the purpose of recording my numbers for my eventual meeting with Not House. But I’m sure you all know how easy it is to skip a test here or there. Sadly, there was a lengthy period of college where testing was barely even a thought. I think that attitude was compounded by my A1c being in range for the first few years. All of a sudden, I understood Diabetes. How foolish of me.
With that, back to the left hand.
If only I can remember to change the lancet on a regular basis. I suppose one battle is enough for me.
#stopdiabetes so rotating fingertips for my blood tests can become a thing of the past
