Hey there all!
Hey folks, I have somewhat of, I guess you could say an odd question.
Well, my brother is type 1 diabetic. he has been since he was 2, he is 24 now.
He hasn't gone to see a doctor in over 8 years, he's been buying this cheap
over-the-counter insulin and needles and such. When I was diagnosed as type
1 a little over a month ago, it inspired him (mostly cause I dragged him with me)
to get on this county coverage, so we can both get our supplies and insulin and stuff.
Well, he JUST ran out of insulin, and my parents are too broke to buy him more, wont be able
to buy him more for like 2-3days. my question is, since I just got my meds refilled and have
plenty of insulin, is it ok to share insulin? he has new needles and such, and wouldnt contaminate
my insulin. My big thing is, should I? is it safe to share insulin with someone else, and would there
be any bad effects if I did?
I mean, morally, I dont wanna say that "I dont wanna give him insulin cause its all mine!!"
I'd be more than happy to share, but my dilema is, should I?? is it safe??
