Blue on Black

Today let’s tackle an idea inspired by Bennet of Your Diabetes May Vary.  Tell us what your Fantasy Diabetes Device would be?  Think of your dream blood glucose checker, delivery system for insulin or other meds, magic carb counter, etc. etc. etc.  The sky is the limit – what would you love to see?

I look at my body in the mirror, and I see bruises and scars. I see site marks and places where the needle went into my skin, only to leave a red circle around a scar. I see bruises from my sensitive skin reacting to the needles and tubing. I see callused fingers from pricking them some times up to what feels like 100 times a day. I see marks that heal slowly and look God awful. I see a rash from  where my sensor was and bumps from sensitivity to tape. I see a red spot where my pump has been rubbing on my side.

I hate these things! 

So, I present to you: The Automatic Mark-Be-Gone. No, this isn't a way for you to get rid of your annoying neighbor, Mark. This is a way for all of your cuts and bruises to disappear instantaneously! You simply install the magic machine into your house (no radiation included,) step into it for 8 seconds, and all of those horrible marks will be gone in seconds! No more fear of wearing a bathing suit or that little black dress. No more scars, or Mederma or Neosporin purchases EVER again! AND, we can make your insurance cover it 100%, as well as all repairs and maintenance! 

Easy as that. 


  1. This is a really clever idea. I love it. I hate all the marks we have to put up with. Can I make a request for this to also zap away spider veins? I have a ton of those...

  2. I have a really annoying Mark I want gone though. Can you make one of those while you are at it??

  3. I so need one of these. But I'm with Brian -- I also need an acquaintance named Mark to disappear!

  4. I'd buy one! But - can you add stretch marks to the list?

  5. And tan lines from the tape covering sites... can you make those disappear too?
