I Got a New Glucometer

I always feel like I’ve missed something there, but how many issues can you have? Seriously? Bah!

As you can see, Fucked up Friday isn’t in the title. I don’t want to offend anyone. However, Fucked up Friday has a certain ring to it and it’s me having a bit of fun with the kaleidoscope of health issues I have. I feel it’s best not to dwell too seriously on these issues.

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned a few aversions I have in the past, and I know I will be mentioning them again in the future. At first I thought it might be a good idea to post about it in order to reference it in other posts and avoid sounding like a broken record. I typed up a draft about my aversions, or at least the strongest ones, and then stopped. I became too irritated to keep going. I left the post for a few days, came back to it, and then reread it.
