This device gives me insulin at a constant rate 24/7. It is attached all the time except when I am in the shower, I need it to survive. Her name is Betty!
Every 3 days I need to change the site of my insulin pump. To do so, I have to gather all the things that you see in the picture above. This takes careful planning, because if I run out of any of these I can't change the site and I would be in trouble pretty quickly. I also need to make sure I take all of these items with me where ever I go in case I need to change the site in an emergency.
I get quite annoyed at how much rubbish I have to throw out every 3 days, I feel like I am contributing to the planet dying! But without all the packaging, the items wouldn't be sterile and I could get infections, which wouldn't be fun. The 2 blue items in the centre are sharps that must go in the yellow sharps container. Everything to the right of the container is rubbish and everything to the left is reusable.
