It seems to be helping...

So, I started to take insulin,

By needle the prefered way to go,

Trying as well to get the drug for free,

So keep prayers coming with regards same for me...


I do see my numbers going down,

Maybe not as fast as I'd like,

But honestly I am feeling a bit better,

As long as I as well get out riding my bike...


It was scary at first,

Using a needle on myself,

But my tummy from the needle did not burst,

So as long as I get the chance,

I will keep shooting myself up with the drug,

And maybe with it, for alot longer in my life,

I can from others accept many a hug...

Good Luck Bro, and keep ridin that bike and eatin the right food. I had a little rescued cat who was a diabetic, and he very bravely and very calmly allowed me to give him insulin shots twice a day. He lived a very long and happy life.

In sullen realization that life isn't perfect and entropy will win in the end, we preserve what we can while we can. Continue to stick to your plan. I wish you health, and happiness in your journey.

Needles. I don't have any veins left because I spent so many years shoving steel rods into whatever vein would take it at the time to squirt poison into my system. I'm supposed to be dead. Still kicking.
