so..this is the story were i took the WRONG INSULIN!...
so one night i was at my dads house. it was a few weeks after my diagnosis and it was time for my 9:00 shot. u know the long lasting one... either lantus or levimere. well i was sorta drowsy, so i was not as focused as i was supposed to be. i grabbed my pen and attached the needle. i then dialed 20 units. i gave it to my dad and he checked that my units were correct. it was, so he said go ahead and do it. i did. immediately after i looked at my dad... something felt wrong. i told my dad that the lantus did not sting as usual. he was like what do u mean. then i yelled that wasnt lantus!!! my dads arm hairs stood up! he dialed my moms phone number and told her what happened. i as so scared.. my mom did the calculations and i had to eat 90 carbs before bed time.. then we called a nurse and she said to check me every 30 mins! anyway i got NO sleep at all. i was so tired in the morning. i did not go to school. i slept the whole time. now each time i do a shot i always check is its the right insulin. haha well thats my story:) see ya next time:)
