I don't mind the smell, but my daughter hates it. If I forget to rinse the sink out after I prime my pump she will run over there and rinse it. I think the smell reminds her that I have an illness and it is scary to kids. Even though I'm pretty well controlled, she has seen a few lows.
She thinks it smells like " half way melted crayons, the kind that make you sad that they are ruined"
Band- Aids always made me feel like things were going to get better. Maybe that's why I think of it when I smell insulin.
Does anyone know or remember what untreated animal insulin smells like? I never thought of additives being what I am smelling.
The sense of smell is supposed to be the sense that is most closely related to memory, That's what I learned in Elementary school anyway,
