Sentimental Diabetic Drivel... Documenting life of a T1 athlete
Monday, July 19, 2010
I'm noticing an angry trend in my posts lately.
and this isn't going to fall short of that.
Damn You FREESTYLE and your snobby piece of shite strips!!!!!!!!!!
There, I said it. Doesn't fix anything though, does it?
So I've lost TWO freestyle meters in the past month but still have strips for them. I contacted Abbott and they gladly sent me a new replacement Freestyle Lite meter within a week. Little did I know that they've changed the bloody things. New colour, New style. Well guess what else they've changed, THE STRIPS!!!
Oh I'm sorry, the new Freestyle Lite states clearly on their webpage, "The FreeStyle Lite meter is only compatible with FreeStyle Lite blood glucose test strips."
WELL stick it up your freestyle ass! Cripes already.
so here I sit even farther away from where I was. A small stockpile of Freestyle strips and a Freestyle Lite meter that won't take the damn strips.
Thank you and F-You!
Needless to say if ANYONE finds my meter on the side of the road somewhere between Milton and Georgetown, please let me know. Or the other meter I lost mountain biking at Kelso Conservation Area. Its a far cry, I know, but hey, still worth putting the word out.
endnote: If you read my "about me" you'll see I clearly am aware that I swear, way too much.
