…how current events are relevant to diabetes.
Its relevant for a bunch of reasons, but this is as good as anything.
But, its also relevant because protests are also a result of quarantine and economic dysfunction.
Healthcare policy impacts the labor market and visa versa. The young are particularly expensive to employ, in part because of healthcare policy. Unemployed young people = civil unrest. It has always been so in all places.
So, the government strategy seems to be, currently, to throw as much money down to us out of a helicopter as possible. I just can’t believe they had this much money. I don’t know how long this can last.
Covid, of course, impacts everything and we are all subject to that nightmare. Our state officials reiterated today, the high mortality associated with diabetes.
While I can’t put all these pieces together anymore, I know it affects diabetics and our well being. I can see all these pieces coming together to crush diabetics who I talk to.
My question: What do I do?
I think that my generation keeps adapting to change, but everything changes so rapidly that as soon as we adapt, everything restructures again. I can no longer see the forest through the trees.
