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.
