Having enough test strips is like having enough water, or having enough food. I never used to run out of any of my diabetic supplies, but the last few months, I've been running out of test strips. I had to ask my endo to up my prescription so that I could get more...and even that wasn't enough! I had to ask a relative with type 2 for any extras; she always gives me several boxes when I ask, but I feel bad asking for them too often. I have enough for now, but I'm worried I won't make it to my next shipment. In fact, I know I won't at the rate I am going!
I hate the thought of not being sure if I'll have enough. I want to have enough of everything I need to manage my levels. Also, it's been almost a week since I sent in my paperwork for a CGM. Medtronic told me they weren't sure how long it would take, but I am hoping it doesn't take more than 2 weeks. I'm starting to get antsy!
