Truth is, I sometimes think of myself as a Hoarder of “diabetes supplies.” When I think about the unthinkable, which would be a huge catastrophe of some kind, one that would prevent us from being able to get Joey’s insulin, I get a sick feeling. Let’s face it, without insulin, my child would not survive 2 weeks. I can buy enough needles to last us a lifetime, but not insulin. We get a 3 month supply, which of course, only lasts 3 months. Sometimes at the end of the 3 months, we start to get low, a little panic sets in. We are lucky to have our daughter nearby, that we could borrow from if need be, and vice-versa. Doesn’t happen often, but at least a safety net. Funny thing about insurance and pharmacies, they won’t let you get insulin before your 30 or 90 day supply ends.
So, if you come to my house, and I have diabetes supplies lying around everywhere, don’t judge me. 🙂 Of course I don’t have them lying around the house, they are in our 4th bedroom, piled up to the sky. Just kidding…
Makes you wonder huh? Have a wonderful Day!
Insulin isn’t a cure, it’s life support!!
