Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom!

To paraphrase our beloved Thomas Jefferson, we must be eternally vigilant if we’re to be free as diabetics:

Free of complications;

Free of pernicious exhaustion;

Free of that terrible, terrible thirst;

Free of hypoglycemic crashes;

Free to enjoy our lives to the fullest – to live a long and happy life.

Man the gates! Grab a lancet, ladies! Diabetes is afoot and we must not let it steal our liberty.
