Until when?

Living in a third world country having a chronic diseases is like death sentence.Have you experienced falling in line just to have a single dose of your life line? (insulin) or you don't even have your own BG meter? How about test supply? have you tried using one lancet for 3 days in a row just to save a dollar or a pound because you don't have food on your table?
My son was recently diagnosed 2 months ago, and I thank God that we're able to provide his medicine and meter supply, but I pity my fellow countrymen especially the young ones who doesn't have enough to sustain their medical needs.
If you think you're unlucky having this disease
but you or your government provide some
assistance with your need.
THINK AGAIN!
THERE ARE THOUSAND OF YOUNGS AND ADULT WHO JUST DIED FROM THIS DISEASE WITHOUT HAVING PROPER MEDICATION. SOME NOT EVEN DIAGNOSED.
