Diabetes Brain (When you see and or hear something that has nothing to do with diabetes and some how relate it to a thing(s) having to with diabetes,) strikes again!
My mind's crammed with facts, my 'Pages' screen a blank slate
Notifications keep popping up on my iPad, reminding of important dates.
Negotiating to buy a car, between conference calls
Dealing with diabetes in the middle of it all.
Testing and correcting is a never ending loop
As is researching Kelley Blue Book values and counter offers so I don’t get duped.
A day off from diabetes is just want I need
A day off from diabetes - to get me internal engines revved back up to full speed.
But diabetes is by my side, regardless of the day
And unlike the car dealer’s final price on the table - I can’t just walk away.
Diabetes has taught me to research, to differentiate myths verses facts,
To advocate for myself and speak what’s on mind -
Not bad advice when your dealing with car dealers “bottom lines."
