People living with diabetes have more then likely looked at each candidates healthcare proposals. Living with a chronic disease effects everything in your life and voting for a president is a major moment in a diabetics life. I'm very very lucky to have insurance and amazing doctors, I feel that I get some of the best care in the world and I'm so thankful for that. To often I hear or speak with patients that don't have the same benefits that I do and that hurts. I can't imagine paying for insulin or testing supplies out of pocket with no insurance. That is one reason I hate myself after not taking care of myself for ten years. As I said I'm lucky to have insurance and supplies but for ten years the only supply I used was insulin, I could drive around my home town and find people living with diabetes that don't have access to the supplies they need and they are fighting this disease with all they have. I was killing myself for ten years and killing others at the same time.
We will not find medical coverage for every American overnight. Tonight your vote will help to change things for the better. Your vote will help a person living with diabetes in Colorado that doesn't have the money to see the doctor on a yearly basis. Your vote will help the undiagnosed get better medical information on the symptoms of diabetes. It may be one vote but it is your vote and that single vote will go a long way to helping millions in this great country of ours.
