Margaret Ford replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'Consensus Conference on glucose monitoring, patient input needed!'

Take Care Lord

Take care, Lord
Let me be weak.
Carry me.
Rock me,
Let me not be
An anchor.
Let me not stretch
The limit.
Let me not mail
Another check.
Let me not write
Another card.
Let me just be.
