    Is anyone here diabetic ?????
    as most of you know..or maybe not I am ...(or may not care..lol..).I am on an insulin pump..
    serves me well and has for many years..
    anyway I test maybe 12-15 times a day so I get a huge amount of test strips..
    recently they changed the type of test strips I use leaving me with a large amount
    I cant use..was wondering if anyone who uses them might want them..
    if you are diabetic and use the same type, please let me know and I will be happy to give them to you at no cost..
    we can work something out as far as shipping..I am sure it is a minimal amount as they are
    featherlight..this is the type I have:
    Accu-Chek Softclix
    Accu-Chek Active Test Strips

    for anyone who doesnt know these test strips can run anywhere form $80-$100 a box depending on your insurance..
    they aint cheap..
    so i am so happy to just give them away as I cant use them..
    please I dont care if a spouse of yours can use them I hate to see them just sit here..
    I merely want to see someone be able to use them

    for the curios ones an insulin pump is like wearin a beaper..bob shimmels daughter came in and was interviewed by howard and hewas curious as
    what and how it worked..it is basically used by people such as myself who are active and chose to (or the choice is made for them) that a pump will serve them better.
    it works as my pancreas serving to break down the foods and giving me the much needed insulin that my pancreas cannot give me ..in gives me a dose every 3 minutes and when i eat i push a button and give myself more based on what i eat.
    if you listen to John Hein on the show , he just got one, he is trying to calculate how he should give himself injections based on the carbs..just a different way..
    we learn to eyeball what we eat and guesstimate the amount of insulin we need..he will make mistakes a long the way i am sure but it gets better..he and i have communicated about his along with the other nerd who wears one..it is like a lil club we have of people who wear these gadgets..:)...a support group you might say..they hook us up right through the company that we get it from but also through facebook we talk..it is kinda kewl..
    when i went up to do SFRT we stood there and he said,"ok, lemme see your pump..." we are called PUMPERS...:hide: yea yea..gay i know..mine is purple..:cheer: isnt it purdeeee...
