This is one of those kind of fun Saturday night question / discussions.
The question is "What would be the very first thing you'd do if and when a cure for Type 1 was announced."
I just have this image in my mind of disconnecting my pump and gently removing my infusion set. I would then remove the battery from my insulin pump and stare at it as tears of thanks and gratefulness would swell up in my eyes. I would probably place it on the mantle above my fireplace.with my one-touch right beside.. for always to be a reminder.
Would I go out and binge on cake, ice cream, candy and everything else I've cut out from my diet? (I know you can eat these things if you want to take enough insulin and can deal with the sugar spikes. I just don't anymore.)
I don't think so. Would I miss having Type 1? Well, no... but I could imagine there would be some kind of hole to fill.
Anyone else care to contribute? Just for fun, right now.
