Originally introduced to the forum by Becca in this thread, members of the forum took up the challenge and posted their creations here. Diabotics are creatures created from the sundry detritus of Diabetes Mellitus – the packaging, needle tips, test strips, insulin cartridges, in fact anything that plays a part in management of diabetes of whatever type.
The creations provide a light relief from the day to day drudgery and diabetes, and can be a particularly entertaining way for children to have some fun despite the seriousness of their condition. Some brilliant diabotics emerged, and have been given their own website at diabotica.blogspot.com . They have even featured in a 2011 calendar this year!
Diabetes doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. We have to deal with it every day and we can’t escape it, so why not lighten the situation and have some fun!
