And a.....




(For Kerri - Five GOOOOOOOOOOLD RIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGSSSS)

Today, I have recieved one Flash meter with 15 strips, one Precision Xtra meter with 300 strips (three hundred! THREE hundred! Amazing), 100 One Touch strips and 50 BD strips. No one wanted me to give their names, but you know who you are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have recieved so many offers of help that I find myself getting all teary-eyed about it. I can't even find the words to say thank you, to express how grateful I am, how humbled I feel by this outpouring of support (and test strips). It's overwhelming.

If any of you are ever in western Massachusetts, let me know. I'll make you dinner. And cheesecake. There will be cheesecake. The insulin's on me.

I bet eleven piper's piping are still cheaper than a year's worth of diabetes supplies. ;)

See, just when we think that people suck in this world... you are there to remind us there is still some good out there!

Keep your chin up. I'm sure things will turn around soon for you. :-D

This is what I love about blogging. I think it's amazing how people have reached out to help.

(I love the name of your blog.)

I'm certain I've got meters that I don't use (and probably strips for them too). I'd be more than happy to send them your way if you'd like (though I'd have to check if the strips are still good).

Just let me know...

Oh the awesome humanity.

Kevin,
Thanks for the offer. We're set for now. If you really want to get rid of some of your extra meters, the Children With Diabetes website has a foundation that takes donations of meters and non-expired strips. You can check out their website and email them about it.

Thanks Julia, I'll look into that. I haven't cleaned out my diabetes supply closet in quite some time... I'm afraid what I'll even find in there.

Whenever I'm feeling my bleakest about people, something like this happens. I'm so happy for you!
