Hello AtticusFinch and :welcome: to the forum! Come on in and get comfortable :couch2:. We have a full house :grouphug: of members that have so much knowledge about diabetes, start asking questions, we will answer your questions or refer you to a place to find answers. You need to be testing your blood sugar, your meter should be your best friend and it will help you how to learn how to eat. I would read what interests you and then ask questions. We can help you by supporting you and by helping you to realize that diabetes can be managed. I hope you have time to visit often and take care!I recently found out I am just above the line to be considered diabetic. I know absolutely nothing. I hope to learn a lot here.
I jab the same place every time . . . my left thumb. It's large, it's always handier than any other fingers, and since my "jabs" seem to heal shut almost instantly, there's never a problem. It doesn't get sore because I poke about four-five different places around the thumbnail.don't yall run out of places to get jabbed?
