ok i havent actualy had a moan or rant in ages so im due one right about now so im gona explode!!!!
So started a new job today, its a live in residential care job which requires me to live in and be on call for 24/7. Being a type one diabetic insulin and supplies are always a priority so i packed a vial of the good stuff, extra tubing, canulas, and a pen incase. I even had a spare box of test strips in my bag. So with a suitcase of supplies packed i headed off to my new job knowing i wouldnt be home for 3 days. I get there at 10 am and decide to test my sugars when i discover i somehow forgotten my finger pricker!!! great. So now i have to resort to poking myself with a 8mm needle for the rest of my stay!! and yeah, ouch, its sore!! then my pump starts beeping this funny noise i never heard before , i read the screen and it said tech difficulty, battery error. So i removed the batt and then put it back in and the pump wouldnt switch on, it just keeps beeping!!! so im basicly fecked due to all my equipment malfunctions!!! in a way im lucky i have the spare needle but why does these things always happen to good people??? im dreading testing mys sugars for the mext couple of days, not due to the awful pain i have to inflict on myself im now pumpless!!! god i hope he works tomorrow with a new batt!!! cant imagine life without him!!! needles again. . . . . . . . NOOOOOOOOO!!!
Anyone have a similar story?? i need to remind myself im not the only one who has to go through things like this!!
