Re: [IP] wrong test results



While you are all "correct" in that modifying your meter's BG readings
defeats the purpose of doing them in the first place, I believe (at least in
my case) that this is a psychological response to early experiences with
doctors. As many of you have mentioned in various posts since my short time
being a member here, we have all had one (or more) doctors in our past who
have made us feel something less than "a good person" because our BG's were
not where they should be. I can't tell you how many times I have started
regular visits with a new doc, only to get that condescending tone and
attitude that makes you feel like a guilty child. I think that some people
can let this kind of attitude "roll off their backs", but I for one have
never been that strong. To all you doc's out there, please keep this in mind
when dealing with us. Usually I am much more willing to follow good advice
if I feel you can relate to "the real world" and can understand an
occasional errant BG. Sorry for my ramblings, but what a great place to
vent!!
