So I’ve been fighting off two colds and lots of work stress so my numbers have been high. I warned the endo and she recommended some things (usually she tells me something and reverse her opinion the next time I return). Also, one of my pens malfunctioned and it’s still 1/4 filled… but won’t put out any dose. While I looked down at my pen this morning, I knew I had 12 U left of Humulog. Quick, run to the pharmacy to order more… and then it happened. “You’re filling this too soon.”
Slightly shocked reply… “What?”
It says that you can’t get your next refill until March 11th. Let’s see… 18 days early.
“Yes, that’s what it says here. Do you have enough until then?”
“Enough for lunch. I guess I’ll see what else I can do.”
What to do, right? I know that by calling my endo, she’ll have me come in again today (was just there last week) and she’ll refuse to call anything in. She’s fun like that.
So rather than wait it out, I guess I go get some OTC Regular with some OTC needles and tough it out. Since I kinda hate humulog, maybe it will be a nice vacation.
Does anyone else have stories about what happens when you go beyond your daily recommended dose?
