I know many of you have grown up in this digital age, where everything is available online, on your phone, or on your tablet.

As she makes her way through our world, the very young, the old, the weak, and the weary flock to her, all hoping for the blessing she will bestow.

Let me say right up front that I may not be the brightest bulb in the hallway, just so we’re all clear. I’m not claiming to be an expert in anything, all right? Just your average American woman recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Since I grew up with several diabetics in the family, I thought I knew a few things about this condition.
The door thudded closed behind her as she entered the large, dimly lit storage space. Empty but for one large crate or box in the center of the floor, there was an eerie feeling about the place which made her shiver.
The writer’s mind can be a bit weird. You get some wacky idea stuck in your head and then start imagining scenes or other ideas from there. Questions come to mind.
I am an infinite being. A being without limits. As far as I can see, as far as I can imagine, I am there. Grounded in Earth, I am uplifted by Heaven.
Chrissy had finally reached rock bottom. There was no place lower than where she was today. She'd lost her job some time ago, and her unemployment had run out. She'd lost her car because she couldn't make the payments. Same thing with her apartment.
DEA agent Shane Shadowstalker cursed and slammed the heel of his hand against the steering wheel of his Ford F-150 in frustration.

Diabetes is a debilitating disease which is linked to multitude of other health problems like heart disease, kidney failure, blindness or more which may require lifelong care and rehabilitation if left uncontrolled. It not only affects physical health but deterioration of the general well-being of a person.

Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middleaged and older adults but can appear in young people. Insulin is a hormone secreted by pancreas to control blood sugar. When our body’s insulin isn’t able to signal properly then the glucose (sugar) from the food stays as it is and may remain too high. It is a disease marked by high glucose levels in the blood and impaired metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, caused by the body's inability to respond effectively to insulin, combined with inadequate production of insulin by the pancreas. The disease,which can occur at any age but typically develops in middle-aged and older adults, often begins with no symptoms, is associated with obesity and inactivity, and may be managed, depending on severity, with dietary changes, an exercise regimen, and oral or injectable medications. Type 2 diabetes is also called non-insulin-dependent diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus..
It wasn’t customary to have the Sheriff’s office as busy as it was that Wednesday evening, at best it was usually the man himself with a few drop-ins of his deputy and a few drunks they kept in a cell overnight, but these were hard times and in these hard times something needed to be done, a change needed to occur in the Northeast and in New England.
