Anyone seen fault lately? You know….fault. We always look for fault. We always find fault. Fault. Pretty nasty rap that fault gets….don’t you think? How things go wrong and how bad life gets……someone’s fault……not mine….right? If not mine, someone else’s fault surely.
In so many areas people are so quick to try to get the fault off themselves. But let’s stay specific about diabetes. Whilst we want to blame the government, the pharma companies, and everyone else…….we also need to look at ourselves. I have a weird feeling that healthcare and other items in this country are going to get worse before they get better so we had all better start to prepare.
What supplies we get, do not get, cannot afford, cannot be given the choice, cannot find, are not made anymore……it’s always and in all ways up to us to make good; for our kids, for ourselves. If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times—the equalizer in all things diabetes is education. And education starts with one’s own self.
Now there may be an entire means to advocate about some of these issues but while all of that is going on, you have to stay in touch with what you need….because no one is going to do that for you. You have to be ready for anything needed, you have to plan for it…..whatever it is and whatever it takes. And if you don’t, you have been warned, it will be your fault.
