Mine’s in the fridge, and I’ve always had one there since the day I started insulin. I’m not sure it’s worth it though… I live with my 11 year old son, who would probably manage to use it if he had to but would be scared to death of it; and my boarder who I suspect wouldn’t handle it at all although I’ve taught him how to use it (a year ago!). I wouldn’t blame either of them if they couldn’t use it - even I have to look at it every now and then and remind myself what to do with it!
Everyone has strict orders to call an ambulance if I’m conked out, and to stick some sort of sugary stuff on my lips (but no food that I could choke on in my mouth). So long as they call an ambulance I’m a happy chappy - at least I know there’ll be someone who knows what they’re doing!
My friend and father are both diabetic, so there’s another reason to keep one handy and refresh my memory on how to use them. Hope I never need to though. I think it’d be scarier to use it on someone else than it would be to have someone use it on me!
I keep getting new ones when they expire even though I’ve never had a use for them yet. I’d rather have one and not use it, than need it and not have it.
