Re: [IP] Newbie Question

Hi Jon,

I'm on a schedule where I *try* to change sites every Wednesday evening and
Sunday morning.  If a site gets irritated, itchy, or red, or if my BGs seem
to be creeping up, though, I'll go ahead and change it.  Last Sunday
morning, I changed sites, had very high BGs for several hours, so I changed
it again--then it was fine!  Some sites work better than others, I guess.

Best wishes,

Lisa Mattox
