It was a sunny Friday afternoon. My father was playing his accordion in the garden. My father is diabetic, and our family has lived this condition with him on a daily basis for nearly 20 years.On that afternoon, my father suddenly felt unwell, and forgot if he already injected his insulin. He asked me if I saw him inject his insulin, and I responded ‘no’. While I meant “no, I didn’t see you,” he misunderstood this to mean, ‘no, you didn’t inject your insulin today’, and went into the house to inject his second dose of insulin that day. He had an insulin overdose – a scary sight. After giving him lots of glucose, he recovered.
Today, He is doing great.
We have a family joke about that Friday afternoon being our sweetest ever, but jokes aside, it was a terrifying experience. At that moment, my brother and I decided we were going to do something to help our father manage his health and medications better. We created Medisafe.
