Day 3 Diabetes Blog Week: Clean it Out

Today’s topic: Clean it Out

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?  (Thank you Rick of RA Diabetes for this topic suggestion.)

Even though we’ve only been doing this a year, we already have so much hoarded.  I would say we have 9 glucose readers with their lancets and some test strips.  We have lots of papers, manuals, instructions, etc.  We bought a special cabinet for the supplies to keep in my daughter’s room and it’s overflowing.  It’s so hard to throw these things away because ‘what if’ we need them.  I can only imagine the collection we’ll have in another few years.

  1. I was diagnosed at 11, and I am so happy when I get to go home to my parents house free of a worry that I might not have enough supplies. They have hoarded them and I am so grateful for that! ❤ Thanks for sharing.
