I have this problem that I love to carry a tiny little pocketbook around. Diabetes really interferes with that habit. I carry around so much spare diabetes supplies that a practically need to carry a duffle bag around with me. In my bag I have: (for lows) a juice box a box of raisins candies (in case my resevoir runs out) a spare resevoir a spare insulin bottle (in case my pump stops working) A lantus pen A novolog pen and a couple of pen needles and of course: a meter test strips a lancing device spare lancet extra bottle of test strips (misc.) 2 Spare batteries for my pump (because a minimed won't take a used battery so if one is a problem...) A mini bottle of advil (in case of highs...) a day's supply of various pills and vitamins that I take That is not even counting the non diabetes stuff like advil, vaseline, mascara, lip gloss.... Am I the only one who is so prepared? What do you carry around with you?
