  1. Why We have to say we are the greatest country in the world. What is great? Look at our so called president, corrupt Moran, senators wasted a holes, republicans. Excuse me greatest country? Our laws don’t work anymore. No middle class, a lot of homeless, people cannot afford to get sick.

  2. Look even with medicare/Medicaid they are even trying to control which insulin we can use. I'm 38, been diagnosed T1D since I was 5 I can't use genetic insulin on the market! Generic causes issues in my system for some reason. They need to make it where people with diabetes are able to have access to their specific brand that works for them! Do the research people! Not all insulin is made the same and not all genetic forms of said insulin are made like name brands. So frustrating!

  3. I was fired from my job as a personal support worker due to getting a service dog specifically a diabetic alert dog. I worked to pay for my supplies ,and have had to pay for supplies on my credit card and now my boyfriend’s credit card. I have no idea what to do or who to go to for help, I have started skipping meals to save insulin but also from the stress. As a child I had all the supplies I needed always a back stock, I didn’t realize I was why my parents filed for bankruptcy. I try to look on the bright side but it’s hard.

  4. Been a type 1 diabetic for 15 years I'm glad Insulin and everything a diabetic needs is free in sweden. In sweden we have something called "högkostnadsskyddet" which means you only have to pay up to a certain amount usually $200 then all medications you have on a prescription will be free until the next period which last a year. Insulin and the other things you need is stated in the law that they can't charge anything because its essential for survival.

  5. Let's just stop calling America "the greatest country in the world" It wasn't back in the day and it certainly isn't now. The shame is it could easily be the greatest country in the world if the government, politicians, and the few who are rich weren't so greedy.

  6. The American people have become cowardice. You’re rich or poor there’s no more middle-class The American people let this happen they allow big pharmaceutical to do this I’m glad I do not need insulin but I will fight with my American brothers and sisters but I will not fight for them We have a constitution that allows us to own firearms when do we make the decision to start fighting back against the government instead of letting the government manipulate us

  7. How is it that medicine holds people hostage just to survive & stay alive…it doesnt make sense…politicians need to act & act now, not after people have already died…

  8. Jesus commes and this is how He looks like in your heart: Revelation 1 13 like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, 15 his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength. ( each time you look on Him and give Him a bigger size as universes as He is much bigger than all created things it gets hotter because of more light.) He forgave us 2000 years ago even future sins.( Israel had a goat to free for 1 year future sins so how much more worth is the blood of God.).

  9. Yes I pay so much test strips and all . I got type 2 from prolonged emotional stress to much cortisol in my blood , nothing I can do now. So watch bad marriages years of of tears type of lives it will cause other illness too, besides diabetes . Price of insulin It’s unbelievable. Help
    Take care
