I should consider this for my son, who never remembers to put his medic alert bracelet or necklet on and won't wear one day in day out, because he doesn't like anything on him when he showers. BUT what do you do... when they finally find a cure? I keep praying!!!!

I'm planing on getting my medical alert tattoo soon, i've been putting it off a bit but im certain on my design now (after it changing about 10 times!) I always make sure i've thought about the design for a long time and like it without changing it!
Mine's going to have a diabetic type 1 a star of life symbol and the phrase "dum spiro, spero"
It's worth having a look at others tattoos in the group inked diabetics, that will help to give you a few ideas.

in terms of Cheryls comment, when i get cured/if i get cured then i will just get above it "cured". I feel that if i was cured it would be a good reminder of everything i've gone through, all the struggles, the tears and smiles.
