Robot Butt recently published a piece of mine, Fuck You, Diabetes (An Un-Love Letter), and they are having a little contest to see which of their April published pieces can get the most traffic. Please help me out by clicking here to read my un-love letter to Diabetes. The contest goes through April 30.
I was diagnosed with diabetes on August 11, 2011. About two months later, we realized that I have Type 1 Diabetes, not the Type 2 with which I was diagnosed. Diabetes is mostly a scary, progressive, sometimes fatal, unrelenting pain in the ass. But it has also pushed me to work harder toward goals and never hesitate because there isn’t a single day of good health (or even just a day) that can be taken for granted. I choose to see the good in it because it’s there and I have to in order to have a fucking fantastic life!
