Diabetes in a Recession.
My diabetes supplies arrived the other day. Some infusion sets, dozens of boxes of test strips, and insulin pump reservoirs. Usually the supplies come in a box marked "Byrem Healthcare" and have a mail order slip on the side.
But the recession is hitting diabetes companies, it seems. And my supplies came, this round, in a box that once held gauze sponges. With what appeared to be a man in the fetal position on the side of the box.
I, for one, am glad to see some recycling going on. But if they ship my next order crammed into a massive stuffed animal bear, I may lose it.
