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.
