condo: http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/...s-without-juice-continue-ambg-65-1-72.189076/ We seem on a roll. I have two strips left and I'm not even worried if I can't test this week-end until the next shipment arrives. I feel extremely lucky (and a bit guilty) that Quintus seems to be doing so well. Has anybody noticed the compulsive/addictive quality there is to all this testing? It's textbook intermittent reward. When I test now I'm super tense while the glucometer is doing its thing. Will it be good? Will it be bad? An hour later I find myself wondering what his BG is and wishing I could get a number. I know this mechanism well, having worked in the field of social media for over ten years. Just as we "train" our brains to want to check facebook or e-mail over and over again (or this forum!), I have noticed that over these last weeks my brain has been latching on to the coloured numbers game on the spreadsheet. Will I get yellow? Will I get blue? Green! Yay!!! See how it works? This is a normal phenomenon, but it means we need to pay attention whether the amount of testing we are doing is medically necessary/useful, or whether it is simply satisfying our dopamine reward cycle. So... maybe I'll leave it at one test today. (Unless the strips arrived, and then I'm toast ) I've added a bunch of labs to Quintus's SS. In response to a question from @PussCatPrince I outlined my text steps for Quintus (quoting myself): I hope you all have a good day and wish you the best of numbers for your kitties.
