Trigger Warning⚠️ Frustrated😠

I am 23 years old and I have been wanting to get tattoos since I was 10 years old. I've been T1D since I was 11 and I am at a point where I want my art. like I am physically growing insane to get inked. I have hyperglycemia diabetes (High blood sugar) but I've been trying so hard to work on my A1C and I just tried to call in my kwik pen refill to find out that I don't have anymore refills but I haven't received my omnipod 5 system to work with my dexcom g6 system. not to mention im almost out of my long acting insulin again so i have to go up to my doctors office sit for 2 hours just to get another sample box of the insulin so yeah 🙃 I'm so f###ing annoyed I'm about to just go rogue all over again. I was without any medication for like 8 years and I was managing. but I'm trying to take care of myself and this is how they treat people with illnesses. the medical industry seriously sucks. this is why people DIE!!!!!!!!! pharmaceutical companies should be more than ashamed and if we decided to burn them to the ground we'd be the bad guys.... I hate it here. money has already lost so much value and it drives people mad. I want to burn the government, IRS, pharmaceuticals and any other stupid major associations that makes citizens damn near piss poor to be able to f###ing live!!!! it's ridiculous and sickening.

      right! Like yeah, I chose to have this disease. I chose to shut down my own pancreas at 11 years old when I didn't even know what was happening to me.

        we are told over and over that we did this to ourselves… but nobody sees the underweight scared inner child passed out in a hospital bed.

    Honestly, I agree. There's a chance that my miscarriage was due to lack of insulin, after I informed people that I needed more, the doctor suggested a different one but neglected to tell either me or my boyfriend that it'd damn near be $700

      are you serious???? 😥 you know every time I've seen my doctor she mentions me starting my own family and being on the insulin pump, but she never put in my info. And then when I finally agreed that I was wanting the pump, she still failed to put in my information. I was contacted like 2 weeks after my appointment about the pump and had to give them my information myself. 😥 but that's sad and it makes me uncomfortable to even want to be an actual parent 😕

        yeah, turns out that the suggestion was completely unnecessary
