Late at night, I'm finally packing up for a spur-of-the-moment one week trip to Amsterdam. As I'm packing, I can't find the next box of needles. (I'm MDI). Oops, forgot to fill the next prescription. How did that happen?!
We have to be at the airport at 4AM, no pharmacy open at this time. Plus I didn't want to get my husband nervous; the whole point of this trip was for him to relax after a very stressful time.
So I did what I normally don't do -- reused the needles for a few insulin shots each. Sometimes they stopped working, got bent etc., once I wasn't even sure if I had injected myself or not, that is a tricky one.
Managed to get through the trip OK, and even had a great time.
So far have not told this to my hubby...
