I know I should be checking my blood sugar but the problem is I don't like pricking my finger; especially with my condition with missing three lymph nodes on one arm. And since I am always on the computer putting my finger... Definitely break the mood. how do you cope with that?

    I'm the same way. Honestly? I don't. They check my a1c every 3 months, give me a stern I should check it, and that's it. I tried the arm thing, (expensive). But it never stayed on more than a day. I'm working up to maybe at least checking here and there, but I just hate it.
