It must be nice
Being able to eat
What you want
Without thinking twice
It must be nice
Being able to
Have dessert on holidays
To eat cake on your birthday
It must be nice
Being able to exercise
Without worrying
That you might pass out
It must be nice
Being able to eat
Or even have a snack
Without having to
Give yourself a shot
It must be nice
Not being judged by people
...Like I asked for this...
No
I can't just 'get better'
No
This is not a disease
This is the way I live
I did not choose this
It chose me
No
I do not suffer from this
I live with Diabetes. Type One

:D I usually don't get snappy. But every now and then I think 'how nice it must be', and i just get tired of people telling me 'oh you'll be fine' or 'you'll get better, right?' I just wanna tell people, "I am not suffering!" :P
