I made a pretty bold statement last Monday. I said:
Maybe they’ll develop a diabetes vaccine someday… Any parent with diabetes or parent of a child with diabetes will tell you that they, themselves, would rather have the malfunctioning pancreas than their kids.
If I put words in anyone’s mouth, I apologize. If it appears that I said that I’d rather see a vaccine than a cure, well, then maybe I did. My words were pretty ambiguous on the matter, and today my thoughts on the whole vaccine-or-cure debate still are a little hazy. For the sake of people living with diabetes today, I’d love for
them us to be cured. For the sake of annihilating the disease for future generations, I’d love to see a vaccine.
I came mighty close, but I never crested the 200 mg/dL level. My meter’s high-water-mark was 196. I call that a success.

“And you’re pissed off because your CGM doesn’t give you the same reading as this piece of crap does?” he asks.
