What is that on your belt?

What is that on your belt?

I’ve been asked this question a kazillion times in SL & RL, and you know what?  I’m very happy to respond to what is on my belt.

It’s an insulin pump.  I am a diabetic.  I’ve had type 1 diabetes for over 20 years now and by choice, I have been on an insulin pump for almost seven years.  To keep it short, the pump provides a much better lifestyle in terms of flexibility and managing this disease easier.  Plus, I rather stick one needle in my body once every three or four days, than two or three needles a day!  However, let me say, it’s not 100% awesome.  Living with a machine stuck on ya 24/7 is no treat!  Getting the tube bunched in my undies is not pleasant, and it’s no fun when the pump gets wrapped around my dog while we are asleep at night!

Anyhoo, I wanted to share this itty bit of knowledge with the SL community about the insulin pump.  The pump I wear in-world is created for free by Noelyci Ingmann of  Ingmann Design Group.  There is a cool feature that comes with this pump, it reminds me every 90 minutes to check my sugars, which is good, cause sometimes you just loose track of time while designing/chatting/blogging/shopping etc…

Noelyci has provided a notecard, that comes with the pump, that further explains why it was created in-world.  “….The idea behind this Insulin Pump is to educate you and those around you to a small portion of what it means to be diabetic. The pump is a visible symbol of being diabetic and may prompt questions. This is a teaching opportunity… To learn more, or to support the search for a cure please visit: http://www.jdrf.org
