    Hi friends,
    I'm bored, sitting at my desk, and the muse hit, so I cobbled together a quick sonnet about diabetes.
    If there are any other budding bards out there, maybe you can add to the thread.
    It's just for fun;)

    Diagnosis: a Sonnet

    I’m still somewhat in a state of denial,

    Since diagnosis just some months ago

    Because my readings tend to be below

    The diabetic threshold all the while.

    The change of life is something of a trial

    And my moods keep on moving to and fro

    It won’t be till December that I’ll know

    The status of my pancreatic isle.

    But then, I realise as a point, it’s moot

    At least in terms of dietary needs

    I wouldn’t go back to my days of yore.

    I won’t go back to carbs, and sweets and fruit,

    Now I’ve got used to healthy, tasty feeds.

    In certain ways, I’m happier than before.

    That's the first diabetic sonnet I've ever read. Congrats!
    I'll have to see what I can come up with..
