I really try hard to think about those emergency situations when packing. I feel like I pack often going to Vince's place or going to Brantford - and as much as I want to remember to pack every little emergency thing I often forget. My new method is to just leave sites in bags - in my purse, backpack and 'sleepover' bag. That way if anything happens I can be sure that I will have an extra one kicking around. However, another tricky thing is insulin - I even said to Vince I was thinking of putting a vial in his mini fridge just in case - considering I did run out of insulin one time and went without insulin for a few hours (and my highest was 8 - amazingly.)
It's hard to remember to bring everything - my only thought about it is is to create three little kits to put in those three prime bags of mine. I would need to put some batteries in there, a site, a reservoir and I guess I could then write a sticky note to remember to bring insulin - since I am not going to let a vial just chill in a bag for who knows how long! I could also include snacks in this little kit I suppose.
That's another thing I tend to forget - snacks! I think it is because I don't go low often - but I do forget to bring snacks with me a lot or dex tabs. The truth is, I am usually somewhere that has something even if I have to buy it. I did however, think the other day when I was at school - I didn't have any money on me nor snacks and wondered what I would do if I went low. I then thought, I would probably just walk up to someone - I know I've 'borrowed' an apple or two in a lecture once or twice.
