D-Blog Week 2013: We, The Undersigned
Recently various petitions have been circulating the Diabetes Online Community, so today let’s pretend to write our own. Tell us who you would write the petition to – a person, an organization, even an object (animate or inanimate) - get creative!! What are you trying to change and what have you experienced that makes you want this change?
Today is my 1 year anniversary with my insulin pump XPU!
At 4:44 PM May 14, 2012 I started pumping. Since I'm thinking about my pump, my petition is about joking requests to pump manufacturers.
WE THE UNDERSIGNED...
Having lived with insulin pump tubing winding itself around door knobs, drawer handles, and cabinet doors, we request adding a robotic arm that instantly unwinds tubing from objects before the person wearing the pump rips out another new set.
Additionally, please reduce the level of sexual attraction between insulin pump tubing and headphone wires. Their complex mating ritual of twirling together in knots has caused us embarrassment and inconvenience.
