The longest 5 seconds in the world is when you’re about to go unconscious and your meter is testing your blood sugar.
If I’m about to go unconscious. I don’t give a fuck about the meter and just go straight to the fridge.
Had anyone else questioned what would happen if you just stabbed someone with their insulin pen and gave them like 30units?
Everytime I ask or bring it up people think I’m syco and want to kill someone….
It’s crossed my mind…
Oh my god, yes.
I have even prepped my needle when walking home alone at night, just in case.
I have even gone so far as to ask my diabetic educator how ,uh insulin I would need to give a non-diabetic for them to die, or at least be incapacitated for some time. She told me it would be irresponsible for her to give me that kind of information. I suppose it varies from person to person anyway.
My dog chewed up my $5000 insulin pump…
I just got a new puppy and chewing on my pump (and tubing) is his favourite thing to do.
