Hello, I’m Diabetes, it’s so nice to meet you.

I just attacked your pancreas, and I’ll try to defeat you.

Because of me you will test and get high and get low.

The meaning of A1C and ketones, so soon you will know.

But don’t worry yet, the end is not near.

There’s this #DOC group and they have no fear.

The blog and they tweet, they support and they’re sweet.

And if you’re strong and determined, you’ve got this thing beat.

But don’t forget those not as lucky as you.

The kids with parents that don’t know what to do.

Reach out and support, a hug or a smile.

It could change someone’s day and it won’t take awhile.

We are in this together, type 2 and type 1,

We can fight it stronger and maybe have fun :)
