As a type 1 diabetic, there are a few things I must have with me at all times, no matter what I am doing. Whether I am spending the entire day away from home or just running to the grocery store to pick up some dinner, everything I carry in my bag serves a purpose in case of an emergency (well, I have a few fun things in there too, but we will get to that lol)
I have very specific things I choose to bring with me every day and I wanted to share details on all of those items! Check out my IGTV below to find out what I carry in my purse every day and why I bring it along. Be sure to keep reading to find additional details and links below!
