compartmentalised into boxes

Published by Ajax in the blog Ajax's blog. Views: 496

I stow my diabetes medication in an ✻airtight✻ container to keep it pharmacy-fresh ..it also makes it easier for me to keep a tally of my remaining doses.

My entire kit is compartmentalised into boxes ..in one I keep a tape measure (to monitor my girth) along with a Calorie Counter book ..in another a spare pack of low-GI ginger biscuits ..and so on.

Each is the equivalent of a folder on a computer ..I've a drawerful of my tranklements in a big filing cabinet.

All this paid off a recently when the council recently did a major electrical installation on the property ..drilling holes into the masonry, etc ..there was lots of ✻grimy dust✻ in the air and on most surfaces.

Knowing my diabetes gear is uncontaminated is one less concern.
