Besides, it's not like she's making me use the Ping remote meter for testing again - while I like my insulin pump, I can do without that chunky, clunky, fat snail of a meter. The iBGStar app provides a lot of meaningful information for me, and going back to life without it... well, I don't want to.
But what this does mean is that I now have one more thing to carry around everywhere; one more accessory sitting on my desk during my workday. They all have cases (because, hi, that's what I do), and while they don't match, it makes me feel slightly better about needing to have so many carry-on items.

(disclosure: I was sent one free to try out); the bottom of my iBGStar phone case.
