Have any of you seen this around the internet? Recently Miss Idaho wore her pump proudly during the bikini competition of the pageant. Since then it has blown up on social media starting the #showmeyourpump campaign that is inspiring other pumpers to post pictures where they proudly wear their pump. I think it is awesome!

Here is an article that has more info about Miss Idaho and her diabetes:

This woman is an inspiration for type 1 diabetics everywhere. She makes me proud to be a insulin pump user. No one should be ashamed of their insulin pump, it is truly a life saving invention.

Unfortunately or fortunately, however you look at it, I don't use a pump. If I did I'd proudly show it off.

Thanks for sharing this JT. Though not a pumper myself, I view the trend of not hiding one's diabetes as a positive one.
