        Theres something going on, I just don't know what!
        Good luck with your cholesterol. There's always something for us to worry about, isn't there?!

        Indeed there is. My last test was in arch and they said the next will be January - yours might be due in February. It's worth asking.

        That should read 'March' not arch!

        Thank you. I don't know how long it will take but I've got as long as it takes.
        Thank you, you have a great week too

      Morning Starfish.
      I have tested a couple of times this morning again using the top of finger just above the first joint. It seems to work well, I could hardly feel the prick at all. It also makes it very easy to hold the meter/strip and gain a reading.
      Also as a plus point I find that I dont smudge blood on my daily log when I make an entry.
