I know things must have been difficult for you lately. I imagine you must feel hurt at my decision to switch from Accu-
Chek to OneTouch with my next shipment of test strips. You felt neglected by my decision to use my old Freestyle meter Fortuna so I could use up those last few Freestyle strips. We’ve both been a little unsure of what your place is during this time of transition and we’ve both been confused by the number of black meter cases in my diabetes drawer.
I know this is a tough time for you emotionally. But I still need you. Running away twice hasn’t helped either of us. When you’re gone, I have this ache in the general area of my pancreas, as if a necessary internal organ is missing. The last time you ran away, I was so worried that I woke up my parents so they could help me look for you. Not fun at all.
Stay home, Gandalf. I need you.
