You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Sharps Container

I had to reload on all of my prescriptions when I started my new job. Of course, I did a last second refill of everything eligible before I left my former job. One of the joys of an FSA account is that the money is there from the beginning, and even if you leave your job, the company still has to honor that money. (Thanks for the tip Dad). My next endocrinologist appointment occured with plenty of time to reload on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING.

After a little paperwork and a lot of patience, I celebrated Christmas in August. 900 test strips and 600 insulin pen needles later, it’s clear I’m going to need a bigger sharps container.

And this is a "3 month supply"???

  1. And if you start on a pump, you are going to need a bigger closet to put all that stuff – two months later and I still have stuff in the box from the supplier trying to figure out where to put it.

  2. Better too much than not enough. Yes, we have a cupboard full of pump & various other supplies. But I’d rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. I’m full of cliches today. 🙂
