L ike they say, it’s good to talk. Some
of us, we can talk about anything.
Others are simply rubbish at talking
about the things that bother us. Is it wussy
to need to chat things over? Should we be
able to make equipment work without having
to call someone for help? The fact is that
picking up the phone is easy-peasy should
you ever feel the need, for whatever reason. There is now a host
of great carelines out there, whether you need a bit of insight
about something that’s confusing you about your diabetes, or a
bit of help making your new blood test meter work. You can get
someone on the “telling-bone” pretty much any time of the day or
night and any day of the week. See the feature on page 8 to find
out what goes on behind the scenes. Don’t stew about it, make the
call. They’re great people to talk to.
