Thumbs up A note to the Beast

Dear Diabetes:

I know you think you got me...you snuck up on me and attacked me and murdered my pancreas and threatened me with all sorts of awful maladies...but it is I who has you, you @#$!* sniveling, pathetic beast. I so have you by the throat, and I am NOT going to let go. I've rendered you pointless, irrelevant, insignificant and inconsequential. I have powerful dietary and exercise bombs in my arsenal, plus I'm a hockey player, so I'm both equipped and determined. There's nothing you can do that I don't have the PERFECT answer for. YOU LOSE.

I know you're not going away, but let this be your one and only notice that I'M NOT, EITHER.

***************************************
A1c exactly two months ago: 10.1

I *WILL* BE IN THE FIVES NEXT TIME, BEAST! COUNT ON IT!

YOU KILL MY PANCREAS...PREPARE TO DIE.
