Fear Itself

I have an Accu-Chek Multiclix lancing device and I really like it.

Except I have this fear that when I'm inserting a new cartridge into the device, that all six needles are going to spontaneously spring forward and stab my thumb, leaving me with much hurt, much blood and a circle-shaped scar.

I have other, deeper, worse, nightmare-type fears, but this one seems like a nice little containable fear to have about diabetes. You know, until the spontaneous springing thing actually happens.

As always, more to come...

LOL! That made me chuckle!

Me too! Everytime I push a new cartridge in I'm terrified of getting stuck multiple times.
