I haven't forgotten, I just don't use any on purpose. After showering and
letting where I'll insert air dry, I poke and go. I change my lancets 4x a
year whether they need it or not, and I reuse most of my reservoirs
refilling with additional insulin to conserve what remains. I'm a bad DMer.
YMMV (~_^)

If it ain't broke fix it 'til it is.
