Now that I have D and wrestle with it every day, I seem to find things in what I read that would hint that the author has diabetes or at least some experience with it.
Regardless whether you like or dislike Clive Barker, don't you sometimes get the feeling from his writing that he has personal experience wrestling with the sharp objects we diabetics point at ourselves everyday?
Maybe, maybe not.
And Anne Rice. Some of the ways her victims give themselves over remind me of how I feel when getting blood drawn for an A1C, its like OK, I'm done fighting, here, take my arm, take my blood, take my soul.
Maybe I am reading too much into it.
I read somewhere that Hemingway was diabetic, but I don't detect anything in his writing that feels that way to me
