But then I started thinking. I'm lucky. Diabetes is expensive...I think that's pretty understood. I'm fortunate enough to have a good job and a consistent paycheck. I'm lucky because my job offers pretty decent medical insurance...I'm lucky because I live in America where what we need is almost always right at our finger tips. I'm fortunate because I live in a place where the availability of not only insulin but clean needles isn't even an issue or something I consider. I'm lucky, and I'm grateful. But I'm sad...because I know its not like that for everyone...I don't know what I'm going to do about it...but I feel like I have to do something. I'm going to do some research and see if there is an organization I can help, because I'm sure they are out there. I know they are. I just don't know where. So I'm going to start looking. And one of my New Years resolutions (is it too early to be making those?) is to find away to help make insulin more available to people who need it and for whatever reason don't have access to it.
That was one part of my day. The other part was sheer productivity! I have gotten so much done in the last couple of days that I actually feel mostly caught up on my life! That's saying absolutely nothing for how I feel about work, but at least as far as life goes...I'm good! My list went from being a full page and a half long to being pretty short. Having 2 days off in a row does wonders for my sanity :)
That said, I'm getting to bed before 3am tonight and if I'm really going to do that, I need to get off the computer.
