Ok, so I just checked my BG for dinner and my freestyle freedom said HI. Jokingly, I said hi back, haha, but I knew I didn't feel HI. SO, I washed my hands, and checked again, it said 389. Still, I didn't think that was right, so I opened the Freestyle Lite meter I just got in the mail and checked with the sample strips it came with, BG on it was 246!!! That's the # I'm going with. Plus, my freedom meter has been taking longer than the 5seconds it's supposed to, it's taking like 10, is that a big deal? My conclusion is that somethings wrong with the monitor, which really SUCKS!!! Especially since my mom is out of work right now and really doesn't have the money to buy me a new monitor. I have plenty of strips for the non-Lite meter, but we can't afford to buy any strips for the lite meter at this point in time (I don't have insurane). I've had this monitor for about 4yrs, so maybe that's it. I know this was a bit ramblish, but what do you guys think? Think it's time for a new monitor?
