105. I Accidentally Gave Myself 10x the Insulin That I Needed - Here’s How That Played Out

February 6, 2024

23 years with T1D and I have never done this before! I’m telling you all about my recent experience of accidentally giving myself 10x the units of insulin I needed for breakfast. After sharing this story on Instagram in real time and getting tons of feedback from folks saying, “This happened to me too,” I knew I needed to share more about how it all played out.
