I get my test blood from my ring finger on my left hand. I use the side of my finger facing me. Why?
It is the finger I have had the most luck with getting a consistent testable sample. I wonder if my wedding ring being on that finger helps. Since I type on keyboards all day, doing it directly on the finger wouldn’t work for me.

I don’t really find the experience painful or nauseating as some do. I donated plasma back in college, so
needles don’t really scare me so much.

My blood sugar is holding pretty steady. I have a doctor’s appointment later this week and hopefully he will refer me to an ophthalmologist so I can finally get a better pair of glasses. More diabetes education tomorrow (food class) so the adventure continues.
