Stripped

A D'Oh moment: This morning I realized that while I'd remembered to pack extra diabetes testing lancets (I forgot them on the last trip from home), I forgot to pack another container of 50 of the test strips themselves, so I have only 19 test strips left. I'll slow down to one test per day (I normally test twice) to stretch the supply, but I'll run out before I get home again. The strips are too expensive ($1 each in the US; I haven't checked the price here) to buy over the counter, in my opinion, as I'm not insulin-dependent, and therefore the testing is more a way to monitor ongoing treatment progress.
