why do i wait?

This is just a small sampling of the number of lancets I have at my disposal at any given time.

Every 3 months I receive another 3 boxes with my pump supplies.  That's a total of 300 every
3 months. 

I had so many that I dropped 6 boxes of 100ea to my local Canadian Diabetes Association office.
I hope they can disperse them to those that may need them.  Seniors, newly diagnosed, those without

And hopefully they will use them.  Because apparently I do not.  I have enough that I should be able to change my lancet every time I test, or at the very least, once a day.

So then, I ask, why?  why do I wait until my fingers hurt soooooo bad, and i get no blood, before I decide it's finally time to change the darn thing?!

I mean it's not like it's a difficult thing to do.  It doesn't require tools, or even any skill.  It takes all of 13 seconds.

So again I ask, why?

Why do I wait?
