Day 13 of 365 : Survival kit, 20110114 DSC 5184  tonemapped1 920x577

I’ve had Type 1 diabetes for several years. Each and every day I use five needles, five lancets, and five blood glucose test strips. Each and everyday I use between 10 and 15 units of fast acting insulin and 24 units of long acting insulin.

Poke, test, inject. That’s my regimen. If I stop doing this, I die.
