At home we put all of Ashleigh's lancets and pen needles in an old laundry detergent bottle. When we're out Ashleigh has always just put her used lancets/needles in the back of her meter until she can empty them into the containers at home. The nurse saw her doing this and started telling Ashleigh how she needs to carry a sharps container with her. Ashleigh said she was yelling and after a while tuned her out while she went on about the containers. I'm not sure if she was actually yelling. Ashleigh's like me and gets her feelings hurt, so she may have thought the nurse was being mean to her. I told Ashleigh if she does anything in the nurse's office to use their sharps container. But do you all buy your kids special sharps containers to carry around with them? I don't understand the problem. They're in the back of her meter case, the meter is kept in her purse. She puts the caps back on the needles/lancets so it's not like sharp things are poking out at her. Ashleigh really doesn't want to carry around a sharps container either. Is there anything else you can think of she could use. I was thinking a water bottle but the plastic is kind of thin, so they might complain about that.
