Stickers also help me quickly distinguish between my long-lasting daily insulin pen and my fast-acting insulin pen that I use at meal and snack times. I made the mistake of taking fast-acting accidentally once….
A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling extra confident about overcoming my fear. I rushed an injection, and realized immediately after that I had used the wrong pen. I was fortunate to be in a bakery where I could eat lots of pie to cover the huge amount of insulin. Although I will seriously cherish the memory of that delicious chocolate meringue pie, it was risky, and I never want that mix-up to happen again. Plus, after-pie belly aches are no fun. 😳
