Re: Re: [IP] A Question about Novolog



WOW - I learned a lot from my little question - Thanks Mike and to all of 
you that answered.
It is very sad to me that we can't afford to be diabetic - some posted 
earlier that without insurance we would not be pumping - well I am in that 
boat.  As my insurence cost have gone up it is harder and harder to afford 
diabetes.  Sometime I think of killing myself - but I can't do that so I 
keep on keeping on - but why should I be burdened not only with diabetes but 
the cost too !  Hmmmm.... sounds like I am becoming a socialist .... that's 
not good
