Agreed!  :)

And the definition of quality of life differs from person to person. For
example, when my BG is above 200 I FEEL crappy, so I do my best to keep
it below that figure! I'd much rather test more often than feel high. 

Other people seem not to be as sensitive to high BGs as I am, so for
them, quality of life may be NOT to test, but go on with their business.
