Sierra Sandison couldn’t imagine how she would hide an insulin pump during beauty pageants. So she decided to show it off for the Miss Idaho pageant. She won. Type 1 diabetics say they won, too.
That’s the lowest it’s ever been, I love my pump!!!!
The kind of diabetes you’re stuck with for life and get out of sheer bad luck. Since only 10% of diabetics fall into this category, it is also known as the type of diabetes nobody knows or gives a shit about.
because you can’t not reblog the men who discovered insulin
Bc diabetes on your own isn’t much fun
Diabetes isn’t much fucking fun at all!
You wanna know what diabetes really looks like?
Don’t joke about a chronic, incurable, life-threatening disease that you obviously know little to nothing about.
Diabetes isn’t a bowl of sugar or sweets. It’s needles and blood and high and low blood sugars and pain and fear.
(Btw the insulin pump picture isn’t mine and if the person it belongs to sees this post, I hope you don’t mind me using it.)
Story of my life, but then again when it happens in person I play along for a few seconds then make the person who did it feel stupid and like a complete ass when I bring up why they are wrong and I am right.
I guess I’m lucky, because I’ve never had anyone say this kind of thing to me in person.
