So, i'm trying to find a green one touch mini that i can take running with me, cuz carrying my first meter (an ultrasmart) or my second meter (an ultra link) is ridiculous. I've been going to CVS and asking if they happen to have any green ones behind the counter (for some reason they all have only pink and silver out in front). So today I went to one local CVS and asked the pharmacist if they had any green ones behind the counter, and he sort of smirked at me and asked "you want it... in a different color...?" like it was the stupidest thing he'd ever heard.
Well, i was just coming from a half hour of fighting lows (which started with a 32), and was not in the best possible mood, so i was pretty upset with him. I just said "yes", but what I wish i had said was "yes. I test my blood sugar 8+ times per day, which means I'm poking a needle into my finger 8+ times, every day. I can't go running without my pockets bulging with supplies because i might pass out if i end up too low. I get to listen every day to all the ways this disease is going to ravage my body. I count the carbohydrate in everything i eat. I am attached to a medical device 24/7, and without it, i would literally die. Yes, I want the meter in a different f***** color. Got a problem with that?"
End rant. Tell me about times that health care professionals have said annoying things to you. Or even better, tell me about times that health care professionals have said things that are really uplifting and useful to you.
