People come to ShootUp from many places. Tim and I harangue most poor souls that we meet into visiting the site at least once. Some people find us on Facebook,
• Why would you shoot up insulin? Generally to avoid dying, that’s the main benefit to me.
• How does diabetic coma affect my driving? I would imagine it makes it very hard to see where you’re going, operate the car or change channel on the radio.
• Robinsons juice bottle dimensions. I like to use a Robinson’s juice bottle as a makeshift sharps container, but I’ve never been diligent enough to measure it. Sorry.
• Diabetes pimping questions. I’m impressed that you’re doing research into your chosen career path. If you’re looking to start working as a pimp for the pancreatically challenged, you do need to know the key questions you’ll be expected to answer in that line of work.
• Pigs butchered insulin. How dare they. Do they not realise what a precious resource insulin is?
• Pictures of arms that have been injected. Ok, I don’t want to judge, everyone has their own thing, but really, the interweb is full of a huge variety of images. I can’t believe that’s the thing you want to see more than any other?
• Why do men still expect you to swing from the lampshades? Ah, that old question. It’s a never ending mystery.
• Monopoly by Medtronic. Cool, this must be their new board game, hot on the heels of Buckeroo by Bayer and Suduko by Sanofi.
• Lake Geneva drownings. Don’t tell me those puppy drowners have been at it again?
• What can I shoot up to get high? No, you’ve misunderstood. Eat sugar to get high, shoot up insulin to get low.
Hopefully that’s cleared up a few of the most important questions facing the pancreatically challenged population at this time. Sometimes we’re so helpful, I think we should be a public service.
