Six Months Worth of Needles


I have been saving every lancet and needle since this site started on August 16, 2007.  Here is what they look like all in one place.  


The YouTube version of the video is here.

‘King of Pain’ as performed by Alanis Morissette is available at iTunes here.  The original version performed by The Police is available on iTunes here.  Please support the artist and join me in thanking them for not suing me for using their song without permission.

This is very touching, and i really didnt know how much all these shots would add up to, how many does Arden usually have??

I am a type 1 diabetic, and my heat really goes out to someone as young as Arden, coping with this terrible disease, she really is the bravest little girl i have heard off. Although i am much older then Arden (12!) i still know how it is to live with Diabetes, but to try and re-assure you, it does get easier for the parent once the child grows up, so my mom says , most days i now give myself insulin and tset my own BG, we need to find a cure, to give all the sifferers their childhoods back, it isnt fair.

STAY STRONG ARDEN, a cure is on its way. xxx

Arden gets an average of 7 shots a day and 9 or 10 finger sticks, more if she has lows.

Thank you Scott. most people i know have 3 or 6, a girl at my school also have Type 1 and she only has 3 shots a day, one at 9 one at 1 and then one before bed.

Thankyou for replying to my question, and also thankyou so much for incuding my comment in one of your recent blogs, it meant to much to me to see that you read it and incuded it, thank you so much
