This is one of the most useful “props” in my diabetic tool chest. This little $7.50 item has saved me tons of worry time, even though I do not take any kind of medication.
Since I am a Type 1 diabetic, I need to inject insulin 4 times each day, and for the longest time (maybe age has a little to do with it), I had trouble remembering if I had taken my shot after each meal.
I had the brilliant idea, after visiting my Mother one weekend, to get a pill dispenser and load it up with my pen needles…one for each meal and then again, just like the little box says for “Bed” time. The little pen needles fit perfectly into the space and if I ever question myself, “Did I already do my shot?”, I simply go to my little pill dispenser and check. If the pen needle is still there, then I need to take a shot. If it is gone, then I know I have already done it!
There is also enough room for the supplements I take, so my schedule is very easy to keep…
Can you guys share any little tips that you have implemented to help in your daily life?
Have a great weekend,
