Been a type I diabetic for 35 plus years....don't have any major complications and its been a way of life for the most part....came across this website and saw the insulin drop and it made me smile....my inner child saw it and I could remember having nicknames for my insulin (back then, my insulin came from a pig) and had to get this. Now, its on my mantle and if I'm having a bad day, its there to give me a hug. Without that specific amino acid chain that is tattoo on it's side, I wouldn't be here to write and plans on getting a matching tattoo. Thank you for this.
Jason! Why you make us cry. This is so special to us and is exactly why we do what we do, so thank you for sharing! We hope our lil' insulin is still hanging around on your mantle. Much love from deep down in our guts.
My 9 year old grandson was just diagnosed with juvenile diabetes type 1. I got a lapel pin and an insulin buddy for him. He already puts it in his special backpack and takes it with him. He is on 4 shots a day and says it helps him out. I am so grateful for your company, helping children feel more comfortable with themselves and what is going on with their lives. Thank you so much!
I purchased the set of hormone pins and love them! They are well-made and the colors are vibrant and beautiful. The closure is safety pin style (but has a latch so is more secure). I like this better because it keeps the pin from twisting around. I highly recommend purchasing these.
