Uh oh.

The soggy box should’ve been a clue.

I suppose this is what my pancreas looks like: emptiness where the insulin is supposed to be.

Except the pancreas probably isn’t made of broken glass.

Fortunately, I had a backup.  (Backup Novolog.  Not a backup pancreas – my pharmacy doesn’t stock those and my insurance wouldn’t cover it anyway.)

Oh, and even though we all do it, the butter compartment of the fridge is not a particularly good place to keep insulin, particularly if it’s also where you keep the butter.

Such are the sagas of living with diabetes.
