June 7th, 2019, When Idiots Assume I will Die young From Diabetes

June 7, 2019



Newsflash: we type 1 diabetics do not die young. We can live all the way up to 80 as Mary Tyler Moore did who is my spirit guide. You see, that whole die young thing is a freakin’ stereotype. The first woman on insulin wound up having three kids, and living into old age. Her name was Elizabeth Hughes Gosset who lived up until April 21st, 1981, as the first American to respond well to diabetes treatment for type 1. She didn’t die young, as you can see because her birthday is August 19
August 19th, 1907. She had received more than 42,000 insulin shots before she died. She lived to be 73. So you see, we diabetics can live a long time.

Not everybody is supposed to die at 30 as some of my ex-friends think. Insulin does not shorten your lifespan-it prolongs it, such ignorance. Missy, I plan on being around until at least 120. It gives me enough time to get shit done. I’m not going to die. Ever. That doesn’t cross my mind, actually. Dying? That’s far from my mind despite my schizophrenia. Sure the voices say mean shit, but I block it out as I’m working on my self-esteem problems. Elizabeth even had kids, two daughters and a son. What she did die of was a heart attack, at the age of 73. She was the sort of person who hid her diabetes from people though. She destroyed any documentation she had ever had the illness.

I’m not like that. I’m more in your face about it. Because in your face is simply the way I am. Rude neighbor-who told me my life is half-over, think again. Don’t be a dumbass, dumbass. Your whole shtick about how my life is half-over because I’m 38, well, that’s crazy talk. You don’t know any better, you ignorant freak show. I’m going to be around a long time. Long enough to get my law degree at least. I don’t know if I have the stamina for medical school just yet. But I can get an MBA too. One degree at a time. I also want to study archaeology/anthropology, although this will have to wait. So don’t be a dick to me in the future because I’m not about to die. I want to do many things with my life, including run for office. Haha.
