Hi, my name is Frank. I've had diabetes since I was eight. I was ready to die then, but medicine intervened. That I'm still here is an act of faith. My religion is diabetes. It's unfortunate that we are used to medicine's economic ends. The morality medicine preaches is tough to deal with. It gives us a bad conscience. Death is given a negative connotation. I don't agree with this. Look at the emaciated being and that is what we are. The flesh and blood is just a cloak. The diabetic is supernatural--he is living dead. I embrace it. We are an amazing caste of beings.
