Patsy - all the best with the packing. As for syringes, I only carried what I required plus a couple on hand luggage and stored the rest in my checked baggage. I carried all medications on as hand luggage, primarily due to pressurisation and secondly in case our luggage got lost in transit, which from memory did happen to a fellow Sth African ED Warrior.
Oh Hun, our minds can play crazy games on us. Hopefully you will have sweet dreams tonight. Xx
