Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**Diabetes and Sharps

A major problem for diabetes is what to do with you testing materials, and if you are using insulin what to do with the sharps  The trash is not the correct answer as they are considered biomedical hazards.

I have found I can get the container at a local pharmacy and they are inexpensive.  I could probably ask my pharmacy for one but that is a pain.  The Valley Medical pharmacy does have a sharps return bin such as seen here.  It is a pain to carry them from home, but I have a sharps container at home and one at work, which is at Valley MediCal Center.
