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.
