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 every day 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.
