We all know how expensive life with diabetes is and it can be very overwhelming. Being a college student money is short. Most of us just graduating from high school don’t have two dollars to our name. Well I’m fortunate enough my parents have good health insurance and I don’t have to pay for my doctors appt. and medical my parents provide that for me, but I still get overwhelmed just because I know that all these expenses will be mine very soon and sometimes it makes me feel like a burden to my family. They never once complained but I still know that it is a lot of money every month.
Anyways needless to say even when I don’t have to pay for all my medical it still finds a way to burn a whole in my wallet.
I spent all day with my boyfriend who lives about 20 mins away so a trip to my house back to his house then back again to drop me off and then back to his house cost about 10 dollars in gas. He isn’t working right now so most my paycheck goes to his gas tank just so we can see eachother (I work with my step mom cleaning office building getting paid under the table… I don’t even make minimum wage right now). Well I got home after our day together and was getting ready for bed and I always put my BG Tester right beside my bed ALWAYS. I went to get it out of my purse when “WTFFF” I had forgotten it at his house so goodbye another 10 dollars DAMNITT!!!
That may not seem like a big deal but ten dollars is a lot to me.
