DIABETES and me have been together for 19 years. I went into hospital and they looked after me. They gave me a needle and it became my friend. One needle a day was alright with me.
A prick in the finger once a day and I went off to enjoy my day.
Now 4 needles a day and 4 pricks in my finger every day.
Humalog and me get along but Humalog needed a friend to help stablise me, so along came Lantus, another friend I needed.
Together they work inside of me, so us “3 friends” travel through life fighting diabetes and hoping one day we will get a cure – maybe not in my lifetime but for others in their lifetimes.
Take diabetes in your hand and control it as much as you can. Remember to smile along the way and one day there will be a cure and you will have had diabetes as a friend and you will be able to say “it worked for me”.
