Diabetes Blog Week Day 2 – Poetry

Our topic today is Poetry Tuesday.  This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you’ve posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!

I wrote a haiku inspired by a couple traumatic low blood sugars I’ve had – when the air was so heavy I couldn’t breathe, and sat in a puddle of sweat wondering if I’d make it through to the other side:

Confusion sets in.
Air is heavy on my shoulders.
Blood sugar 39.
