Diabetes Blog Week 2015 – Day 3 – Clean it Out


Welcome back to Day 3 of Diabetes Blog Week 2015! Here’s the prompt for Day 3, Clean it Out – Wednesday 5/13:

Yesterday we kept stuff in, so today let’s clear stuff out. What is in your diabetic closet that needs to be cleaned out? This can be an actual physical belonging, or it can be something you’re mentally or emotionally hanging on to. Why are you keeping it and why do you need to get rid of it?

My parents recently moved out of the house that they purchased 29 years ago, before I was diagnosed with diabetes. In the process, my mom came across numerous old diabetes-related items that had been hiding in the closet for so many years! She found an old bag that I used to carry my glucometer when I was in elementary school as well as the case that came with my first OneTouch machine! We opted to toss the OneTouch case but I had to keep this bag!


I do still have a fair amount of supplies that I’ve stockpiled through the years, including my old insulin pumps and glucose meters. I keep them as backups in case my current meter or pump decides to kick the bucket. I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of them anytime soon! ;)
