Your Monthly Reminder

Still, ouch

Rainbow colors should make your fingers happy to be stuck!

Because I’ve recently had many animated conversations with other PWDs about this, and I wrote a post noting how infrequently we change them out, I thought I would remind everyone (myself included) to take a moment here, on the 1st of the month, and change out the lancet in your checker! (This one goes out especially to you, Laura, since you asked for it 🙂 ) Your poor, overly scarred, and  tired-of-all-the-bloodletting fingertips will thank you. End of PSA.

But they still work fine!

Who knew lancets expired? And that I’ve had these so long that they can almost drive a car by themselves?
