OMG!! I just went to check my mail and there were 2 boxes in there.  I got 2 free meters from I don't know where or who...I got a One Touch Ultra Mini and a Freestyle Lite... What is going on?  Do companies find out about your diagnosis and send you crap?  Strange.
And of course the stuff to go with it costs a fortune...
Anyone else have this happen to them?

We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...

I think it's very strange that you received the two meters out of the blue.  No, I highly doubt any company would just send them to you because they require a person to fill out a form as to why they need a meter.  Maybe someone you know, a family member, friend?, filled forms in your name?  I had posted 3 websites a couple of weeks ago of companies that would send a free meter and those are 2 of them.  In any case, these companies hope that patients like their meters and decide to stay with them, thus having to order their test strips.
