What DIabetes Is All About

Diabetes is like a crossword puzzle that never ever has an answer.
Diabetes is like a Lover who promises you the Rainbow, but keeps you waiting,
Diabetes is like many Endocrinologist who understand a partial glimmer of the Disease and remain content after looking at their
15 min. watches.
Diabetes has brought Grant Monies for Research that has nothing to do with T1DM, but a new desk instead.
Diabetes has brought more women into the fold so that they too, can be manipulated while given new pens.
All these meetings in Texas speaks volumes to the thirst that is needed to put a dent into this this Disease by start calling it by
its correct nomenclature and cease giving out T-shirts and expecting those that Represent us to give a damn.

Well said. It's forever a promise, but short on actual deliveries!

Many conferences and meetings
regarding "New" developments in Diabetes are usually held in Texas as is the current one.

Wow, powerful stuff.

Diabetics shouldn't have to be content with half measures and profiteering instead of research and solutions!

I'm glad you say it out loud!
