Same here - I have no problems with testing if someone does they may
need to realize they are being nosey - I don't stand at the restaurant
table and yell out hey everyone watch me I gonna draw a drop of blood
here I am discrete and I pack all my goodies away I don't expect anyone
to pick up my alcohol swab or sticker - I just test and pump Ive never
had any one comment other than one coworker at a meeting say I could
never do that! I said do you sew she said yes I asked if she had ever
stuck herself with he needle she said yes I asked what did you do when
that happened? She replied I stuck my finger in my mouth! I said well I
stick mine on a test strip and then use an alcohol swab it's cleaner
that way! She said I get your point but I still could never do that I
told her seriously you learn to do alot of things you may not like to do
when it means the difference between living and dying!
