Diabetes Blog Week 2014 - Day 2 - Poetry Tuesday

This week is Diabetes Blog Week.

Each day diabetes bloggers around the world will be writing a blog post on the same topic. You will be able to see who is taking part and what the daily topic is at Bitter Sweet Diabetes.

This is the first year that I have taken part and I've found it extremely challenging. They certainly aren't topics that I would normally choose to tackle, but sometimes it's good to be outside of your comfort zone!

Today the topic is "Poetry Tuesday"

This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you’ve posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!

My response:


Understanding Hypers - Which dose to revise?

Click, Stab, Test - Sigh.
Calculate, Record,
Inject - Don't cry.

Finding the patterns.
Looking for clues.
Considering options?
Is it time to revise?

Click, Stab, Test - Sigh.
Calculate, Record,
Inject - Don't cry.

What am I doing?
Why am I high?
Will I do exercise?
Is it time to revise?

Click, Stab, Test - Sigh.
Calculate, Record,
Inject - Don't cry.

What is the reason?
Could I be ill?
What justification?
Is it time to revise?

Click, Stab, Test - Sigh.
Calculate, Record,
Inject - Don't cry.

Now I am low.
A hypo to solve.
Was it a miscalc?
What's gone awry?

Click, Stab, Test - Sigh.
Calculate, Record,
Inject - Don't cry.
