i don't know why its hard for me to remember but every so often i do good but then a couple days later i start forgetting and its not like a necessarily don't want to remember because i actually can't sleep at night sometimes because i feel guilty for forgetting and beating myself up about it and i'm honestly some days really scared of whats going to happen to me if i don't start remembering more. Does anyone have like any tricks to remembering to so the simple testing and giving yourself insulin. I unfortunately don't feel the high blood sugar until it gets really up there so by the time i realize i forgot its to late and i just gotta do correction and i'll be in the 400s. I know the thing my family and doctors try telling me is "oh set an alarm on you phone or something to remind you!" but when i do that it always goes of at times when i can't do anything about it and i'll turn the alarm off and try dealing with it as soon as i can but i almost always forget to get back to it.
All I can say that I know exactly what you are talking about. As a T1 of 26 years I had this problem many many times. I kept asking my doctors if there was a smart solution to help us multi day injectors remember when we took our insulin. There never was.
I therefore assembled a team to solve this and our output was Timesulin, the replacement cap for insulin pens that we invented. The entire concept with Timesulin is that it should be so easy to use that it doesn't require an instruction manual, doesn't require you to change your routine and helps us concentrate on things other than our diabetes.
It certainly won't solve all the challenges we have to deal with, but hopefully it will help ease this worry about missed and double injections. We are selling all over Europe and hard at work to get it over to the US as quick as we can. Spread the word to help it go quicker.
I will be at the ADA conference in June and would be happy to meet with anybody that is interested and show the product. @johnsjolund on twitter.
Thanks for the interesting conversation and hope this can help some of you.
