Respectfully snipped, but I completely agree. I might walk out of my house without shoes or forget extra underwear when packing for vacation, but I have never even come close to leaving the house without PDM and glucose. My 12 yr old son is the same way...he always asks if I have his PDM before we head out somewhere. Matter of fact, I even threw it in my purse once when he wasn't coming with me! Just absolute habit to grab the stuff he needs. I do think the PDM is too big to stick in a pants pocket though. Wish they'd made it slimmer!
