What do you want to tell diabetes

Scott Benner

This morning on Facebook I found myself wishing that diabetes was a 'someone' instead of a 'something' so I could tell it to go f#^& itself for keeping me up all night. I had a particularly long day working around our house in the heat yesterday and today I find myself with more writing to do than time in the day - I really needed that sleep.

I must admit... venting about it online felt good!


In fact, I liked the experience so much that I thought you may like to tell diabetes off and start the week with a clean mental palate too. So feel completely free to leave any message that you may have for diabetes in the comment section of this post. Don't worry about language or tone... let it fly. Usually, I love to see who left comments but today, wanting to be anonymous is completely understood. I hope that you find it as cathartic as I did to say, "fuck you diabetes".
