Hunger Lows

  • Blood Sugar: 47
  • Me: Ok. Time to be a good diabetic. Eat 15 grams of carbs, wait 15 minutes, and retest blood sugar.
  • Me:
  • Diabetes:
  • Me:
  • Diabetes:
  • Me: *eats 4 large bowls of cereal, 8 granola bars, a bag of chips, a car, and my entire family.
  • Diabetes:
  • Me:
  • Blood Sugar: 307
  • Me: Why did that happen.

WHILE NO ONE IS SAINTLY AND COMPLETELY NON INSULTING ,LEAST OF ALL ME , ONE THING I HAVE A GIANT ISSUE WITH IS THE VERY COMMON AND VERY THROWAWAY USE OF THE TERM “JUNKIE” WITHIN SOCIETY.THIS IS BECAUSE IT NOT ONLY SHOWS A COMPLETE LACK OF RESPECT FOR PEOPLE BUT THE TERM ALSO DEHUMANISES THEM ENTIRELY. NO MATTER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES YOU ARE IN,NO MATTER WHAT CHOICES YOU MAKE IN LIFE,EVEN IF THEY MAKE YOU LOSE YOUR LIFE IN THE END,YOU ARE STILL A GODDAMN PERSON WHO DESERVES RESPECT AND COMPASSION AND TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY BY EVERYONE AROUND YOU.WHILE VIEWING THE EFFECTS OF DRUG USE CAN DISGUST AND ANGER PEOPLE TO DIFFERENT LEVELS,WHAT’S MORE DISGUSTING IS THAT BECAUSE OF A MIXTURE OF UNBELIEVABLE SOCIAL STRESSORS PEOPLE ACTUALLY GET TO THAT POINT IN LIFE. SADLY ,DESPITE THIS BEING RELATIVELY COMMON KNOWLEDGE, SOCIETY’S GENERAL VIEWS TOWARDS THOSE WHO STRUGGLE WITH DRUG ADDICTION DAY IN OR DAY OUT AS A WHOLE HAVE NOT CHANGED.

The fantastic thing about every single one of my friends is that they are that larger than life in personality terms that whenever I need it I dont have to look that far for a funny memory or two.Just take this homage to miranda sings from @georgieannb for example.
