I wish I could find the source for the following image, but I love it too much not to share.  (I think it was Type 1 Diabetes Memes but I can’t re-find it.  If you know the source, please leave a comment so I can link out appropriately!)  This is real life as a pancreatically-challenged cyborg:

The punch line!  The pun! Much joy.

And I came across this tattoo on Pinterest from user Carmen Bailey.  Her comment, in case you can’t read it:

“My cousin Jeff is getting married in just over a month, and his fiance has diabetes. He got this tattoo of an infusion set (from a insulin pump) to match his bride. I think it’s adorably romantic.”

Agreed.  This is adorably romantic and also safe from doorknobs, making it a double-win.

Insulin pumps:  A source of insulin infusion, tattoo inspiration, and comic relief since 1963.
