    I'm not deliberately running high just to avoid a zombie-hypo. Just think of the potential long term complications, how can you run from a zombie with dodgy eye-sight?

    I reckon I'm raiding a local museum for a suit of armour and stocking up on AA and AAA batteries for the pump.

    Ely should become an island again and I'll live in the cathedral with a good high vantage point to look out for approaching zombies. Anyone read Day of the Triffids? They go for the Isle of Wight in the end.

    There's a barracks down the road as well, so I should be able to stock up on small arms and landmines.

    It's also pretty fertile round here so The Good Life here I come.

    And last thing, I'd be straight down to Addenbrookes, kidnap a surgeon and get him to teach me how to transplant a pancreas, should be a good supply available and we can practice on each other.

    You're all forgetting that the To Do list would have to get much shorter, not longer. Skiing? Pancreas transplants? Kidnapping surgeons? I admire your tenacity, though. I think the zombies might come over to us.

    I saw that - it was bloody daft - the women dies after about 2 days of no insulin - if she had died two years later it may have been a bit more believable. And it scared the willies out of a lady friend of mine after I'd forgotten to pack my long acting for a couple of days holiday :nailbiting:

    Saw that one lol. I have wondered if vampires would like the taste of sweet blood better. Being a diabetic vampire is a new one though. I think you would be cured though as technically vampires are dead / undead, they don't even need lungs let alone a pancreas. Wow I'm really thinking about this too much!

    Definitely the best posts in quite a while, it actually makes me quite sad I wouldn't have a fighting chance in a zombie apocalypse :D
    Why do you want a cure for diabetes? To make surviving a zombie apocalypse easier!
