España - Here comes the Diabetic!

Well, my friends, tomorrow morning at 7.55am I will be flying to Spain with my boyfriend Adam and our friends Paige and Ryan!  I AM SO EXCITED! :) 

This is going to be my first holiday away without my parents or other family members, so I've been extra careful to make sure that I have packed everything I could possibly need to make sure that my diabetes is kept under control for my week abroad.  I have packed:
  • 5 packs of glucose tabs
  • My NovoPen that I use to administer NovoRapid
  • A spare NovoPen
  • 4 NovoRapid cartridges
  • 3 Solostar Lantus disposable pens
  • Blood testing monitor
  • Finger pricker
  • 2 packs of testing strips
  • LOADS of 8mm needles and lancets
  • Medical travel insurance
  • A letter from my GP

So, I think it's safe to say that I am well organised!  Now I know I just need to keep an eye on my carb counting, but most of all I want to enjoy myself and have the time of my life whilst knowing I am safe!  I will be sure to tell you all of my D-Adventures when I get back.  Adiós señoras y señores! :)
