Clean it Out - #DBlogWeek - Day 3

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.)



As far as supplies go, I'm pretty organized.  We don't have much closet or cabinet space so I use the plastic drawers.  Not the most decorative but it works.  Originally the supplies were on the counter, then I moved it to a drawer, then a cabinet, and it was all over the place lol. That's when we cleaned out and got the plastic bins.  Now it's all together, besides the insulin that fills up where the butter should go haha!!  

Piles of stuff that had accumulated over 2 years.

Nice and organized ;)


Emotionally, I'm not sure if in hanging on to anything.  I probably am and don't realize it.  I've accepted that he has T1D, and that the possibility of a cure may not be a reality in his life.  Although we walk and fundraise, it may not directly help find a cure.  However there are things that will most likely be available in his life that will make managing it easier.
