Minimal damage, and feeling grateful

6 unopened vials of Humalog. 2 unopened Humalog Kwikpens. 5 unopened Humalog penfills. 4 unopened Levemir penfills.

All of this went in the garbage today, the result of losing power and having all of my backup insulin hit room temperature in the tornado that hit my city a few weeks ago.

So many people lost so much. People lost their homes, their furniture and belongings. I am very thankful that my insurance plan covers 90% of the cost of insulin. I can restock my backup supply, and I feel so fortunate to be able to do that. My home, my family, my loved ones are all safe, and I won't be left struggling to pay for replacement bottles of this lifesaving drug. Just feeling grateful today.
