Irony: The Thrice Edition.
(No, I'm not sure if that title makes sense either.)
After my last few days of completely screwing up, I tried to do at least one thing to improve my diabetes - I finally created a real emergency kit for work.
This little gem has everything I need for a diabetes moment on the job: I have a backup infusion set, some lancets, several boxes of test strips, a Humalog insulin pen, a spare One Touch UltraMini, and even a SkinTac wipe for any CGM sensors or pump sites that go rogue.
Neat and tidy and prepared. Hang on .. let me adjust my Boy Scout badge. It's the one for diabetes preparedness.
But what's missing from this kit? Fast-acting sugar? Nope - my office has a handy stash of candy for low blood sugar reactions and sweet teeth (sweet tooths?) alike. How about the Quick-Serter for the infusion set? Nah, I live five minutes from my office, so if the site isn't working out, I can pop home and fix it right quick. Battery for the pump or a just-in-case syringe? Both are safely tucked into the meter case. This little box appears to have everything I'd need for a short-term fix ... what could be missing?
Oh, I know! Irony!
