Life is going well for this diabetic, straight A’s in all my classes, and falling more in love with Jared every day. Diabetes is on the back-burner, it’s not in control of my life!
But I have to face it.
As I grow older the back burner has been slowly moving closer to the front, at times catching my shirt on fire. I put it out and look once again for a way to cool this heat. It controls me daily now.
Shots just aren’t enough anymore. My blood sugar levels would dangerously drop at night. Sugar is more affecting to my body. I feel different.
But I can’t afford an insulin pump. It’s too expensive and I have no money. We’re poor. I feel mad at the bourgeois who set the prices. Why on EARTH does it cost so much?
Well, do you know what?
They’ll get the money because we can’t afford not to buy it.
And those who can’t will die.
