Today, I learned my friend's son died last Thursday, complications with diabetes, after his sugar routinely hit 700, and his body just fell apart. I called, and his wife told me in tears that they were not prepared to bury their son. These are elderly people, and the son was not young, but the tears are beyond time. I took this as the sun went down after we spoke.
This man didn't seek help, and just assumed he'd die young. His parents did not want that to happen, but could not help him. There is no cure for diabetes or cancer, but @realdonaldtrump wants to cut funding to the #NIH. #bigpharma is why. Our government is bought and sold by an industry that profits from prolonged treatment rather than cures. #science not profit needs to be our aim. We need more funding, more research, more oversight and more transparency. But we won't get it. Not while this system allows -- encourages -- dark money, allowing "leaders" to line their pockets while people die, knowing that those who haven't yet gotten sick will ignore the problem until it happens to them. It's the American way. #godblessamerica #delusions #nofilter #architecture
