Diabetes Deals? Hey it could happen…right?

I love me a good Groupon deal. Or Living Social. Or really anything that can get me $3000 worth of zoo visits for $12.99. I get a few of them every day delivered to my inbox, and most of them I have to delete right away before I get all excited and go purchasing $300 worth of pet toys for a dog I don’t have.

But what if all these deals that came through were for diabetes?! I can see it now….

$39 for $4,000,000 worth of pancreatic islet cells: Transplant not included. Must use before 12/12/12.

$100 for $50 worth of test strips:Huh, that’s charging double what they’re actually worth? Wait a minute….that’s still a savings on what’s actually charged!

$0.99 for $10 worth of glucose tablets: No takers? What’s that you say? They still taste like flavored chalk, no matter how cheap they are?

Four hours of someone else testing your blood sugar for you and interpreting the results.  A priceless value for only $29.99: Not having to think about diabetes for four hours? Yep, that’s priceless.

Two nights and two days at diabetes camp for adults for only $199: Screw the tropical vacation deals! Let’s go to ‘betes camp where I can feel normal for once!

Ok, so these deals won’t be coming through any time soon, but a girl can dream right? What Groupon would you want to see come through for your diabetes?

I’m still smiling. Love this post.

I’d like the one where someone else thinks about my diabetes for me for a change. I’ve decided to get a pump so I’ve been busy researching pumps so of course that’s ALL I’ve been able to think about for the past 24 hours. I want someone else to do that for me. 😉
