What places/facilities offer free, fast-acting insulin? I should have gotten my Humalog a few days ago and have not. Also, I have NO fast acting insulin. Is there any resources I could go through to maybe get a sample pen or anything to hold me over until I get my supply of Humalog?! I needed this stuff like yesterday!!
Also I'm 21 with no health insurance or any source of income.

Have you tried your doctor's office? They will sometimes have sample bottles they can give out. Also if you have a diabetes education center in your area or a local chapter of the ADA might be able to help you. If not, if you are close to a Walmart, you can buy insulin over the counter for like $30. It's the ReliOn brand. Syringes are like $10v or $15 a box. I just had to replace a bottle that got broke. I use Humulin from ReliOn in my pump. I'v also purchased Novolin for about that same price over the counter.
