The Pincushion Effect

This incredible piece (titled “The Pincushion Effect”) was posted on Flickr by duisburgbunny. It touched me deeply because I have diabetes type 1 and I am an insulin pump user.

While it’s not really an urban art piece, it pretty much combines the elements that people with diabetes (particularly those on an insulin pump) employ on a regular basis to manage their condition.

I want to take the opportunity to invite anybody reading this space to join, a growing global community for people touched by diabetes. See you there!
