To My Pancreas
Kerri Morrone, a patient with diabetes, writes an "Open Letter to My Pancreas."
Dear Pancreas I’m not sure what the hell happened to you, but you’ve taken it upon yourself to stop working. You did have that job for about six years, where you got up early every day and produced my insulin, but apparently that was too much for you. You were laid off or fired or something. Don’t blame it on that virus again. I think you just slept through the alarm and were let go and you just don’t want to admit it.
Read the rest at Six Until Me. It's good stuff.
