RE: [IP] deciding not to check



I was laughing so hard when I read this.  THIS CHILD YOU ARE DESCRIBING WAS
ME!  I did the same thing.  Even worse, I used to make up bs readings and
log them into the logbook on the way to my Endo appointment.  I would show
perfect levels and come up with a 11 or 12 A1C.  I would make excuses like
my machine must be out of calibration or something.  It always worked for
me.
Just be happy if this is the most rebellious thing he ever does!
He will grow out of it eventually and start taking care of himself.
