Done some maths yesterday and I’ve given myself over 57K injections since my T1D diagnosis. Today’s coronavirus vaccination felt like the most important yet. Thank you NHS.

Monkey giving a lamb minifigure an injection in the arm.

The maths

+5 routine injections a day
+~3 corrective doses a week => 0.428571428571429 a day
= 5.428571428571429 a day (average total)

10,517 days since T1D diagnosis (mid-1992)

10,517 x 5.428571428571429 = 57,092 injections
