Tomorrow, tomorrow....

I love ya, tomorrow...

Things have been frustrating here in diabetesland lately. Although I consider Afrezza to be a gamechanging tool for me, essential to making me feel like an actual human who can eat actual meals rather than a slave to my blood sugars, insurance companies across the board beg to differ. Meaning access is getting trickier and trickier for me, which is scarier and scarier. What will they decide to take away next?

However, that's not what I want to focus on today. Today I want to talk about this and my hopes for the technological tomorrow. I want to talk about citizen science and the amazing advances that people are making because they want to and they can and they are willing to work hard.

It's easy to feel disillusioned with people, when dealing with insurance companies and bills and access.

Sometimes I just need a reminder that there's a flip side, a glimmer of hope. That people are marching fearlessly into the cyborg future and they're generous enough to take others along with them.
