Just Stop Talking

Prompt: Write a poem (5‐10) lines where every line is a lie or misconception about your health condition.

You don't look like a diabetic.

Did you eat too much sugar?
Will your kids get it, too?
My aunt lost her feet from that.
Have your numbers finally stabilized?

I thought you couldn't eat cookies.
You shouldn't get pregnant.
You shouldn't wear high heels.
You could get yourself off of insulin if you tried.

My dad changed his diet and got rid of it, you know.
