Kinda Makes You Wonder about the World Today

Now HERE'S a rotten story.

Teen robbed of insulin device

What kind of people would steal a girl's insulin pump? This really burns me up. Plus, what the hell are they going to DO with an insulin pump? Insulin to a non-diabetic person, fries your brain and can kill you. Back in the days of barbaric treatment for the mentally ill, insulin shock (purposeful overdose of insulin) used to be used, along with icepick lobotomies, to destroy part of your brain in order to calm violent mood swings. Now THERE'S a fun prospect for a Saturday night.

And that young woman needs her pump. Now she's on shots again, I guess, poor thing. Good luck getting insurance to pick up the tab for another pump. Dangitall.
