Read Poem: Diabetes – you own it!!!, by Jason Andrews

Living with a condition where maths is involved

Culminates a path where I need to remain strong

Working out the numbers from the foods we eat

Is keeping me alive and that doesn’t include the heat.

Diabetes is a lifestyle change

Not just for Christmas,

Test your sugars first

And workout what you need to eat

Then there is the recording, no mean feat.

Ketonacidisis I look to avoid

Yet there will be slip ups

The art, don’t beat yourself up with a void.

Be strong, be focused

You own the condition, it doesn’t own you

What I mean?

It’s quite simple, you are responsible for a serious disease

But with good discipline the situation can be a breeze.

“Talking from experience, and it’s not all about being careful, science and methodology is involved”

Jason Andrews
