The First Time (#HAWMC)

Today's WEGO prompt: The First Time I… Write a post about the first time you did something. What is it? What was it like? What did you learn from it?

 The first time I checked my blood sugar wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. Being pregnant with my first child and diagnosed with gestational diabetes was scary enough. Poking my finger was minor in comparison. After all, I had my share of blood work over the years. Of course I flinched at the sound of the lancing device. I learned to just poke myself and get it over with. The anticipation was usually worse than the actual act.

Now it doesn't even phase me most of the time.
