The Lost of A Trusted Diabetic Friend


#1

Medic Alert bracelet,
You have been a great friend and have never been away from me in 2 years. You have only came off during surgeries and mri’s but have never been far away. You went right back on my wrist in a matter of minutes. You were there during the asthma attack and I couldn’t talk to the paramedics. They looked for you and were able to get my information. You never left my side the day my blood sugar was in the 30’s and I was in shock. In the e.r., they saw you immediately and turned you over and gathered my information from you. You probably saved my life that day. For 2 years you have been there, but you have to be replaced. I hate to see you go.



Isn’t it weird how we get attached to our diabetic “toys” and hate to see them go.

ahhh… I know that feeling oh so well! I transition very poorly to new items in my life! Thankfully, I was able to force my old meter into working for 2 months while I sat and looked at the unopened box for my new meter. Still, had the shakes just trying to open the box and call support to set it up. Now, I still dont like this one and am hoping to find one easier to live with.
