I wish for a cure,

I hope for a cure,

I’m losing faith in a cure.

A cure for society.


        I am SHOOTING UP.

“Insulin,” I say.

The stares say what they will not,

                      “Can’t you do that

                                                IN PRIVATE?”

“Can’t you BREATHE

                              IN PRIVATE!?” I respond.

I’m losing…my...mind

So I am feeling a little a lot ranty right now 

That I am poor, sick, overeducated, unemployable, underinsured, and pissed off! 

That I think I'm going to run away to Europe to get better health insurance because no one should have to live the way people with chronic conditions/illnesses live in the United States of America B*******. 

That beyond…

hey Taylor, I guess it would depend on what your snacking on, I try to snack on low carb or no carb snacks, but if your eating something with like over 15g's carbs I'd think about taking a slug of insuline. I'm no diabetes educater, but I've had it for over 20 years. When I'm involved in some exercise I'll snack with out taking insuline, but if I know I'm not going to be active and want to eat I'll take enough to counter the carbs. I find that if I'm going to be active for a long while I'll try and bring my sugars up to 200 so that I don't have to worry about goin low, like when I'm surfing and don't want to come in out of the water I've been doing this since I was A kid and most of the time my sugars will be back to normal by the time I'm done with what ever exercise it is I may be doing. I can't imagine what it would be like to have been diagnosed later in life, I was only like 10 or 11 when I found out and at that age your not so set in your ways so changing your eating habbits is a little easier, for me anyway. I wish you the best of luck with dealing with this and can tell you that I have not been held back in anything I've wanted to do. I've traveled around the world surfing, climbing, and enjoying life. Stay strong and hit me up with any questions you may have.

whats up Taylor? I'd like to hear any questions you may have, seeing you've just been diagnosed. I'm interested in what your actions or reactions were to the news. I'd love to be of some help
