healthcare is a right, not a privilege~

the waykoolkats over at diabetes talk fest are running a petition to be signed for insurance companies to stop banning continuous glucose monitors.  if you can, please head on over to gina's site (diabetestalkfest.com) and sign it.  
    these types of issues are extremely important, because although new technologies exist to make Type 1's lives better, it is often viewed as an accessory, and not a necessity.  
HA!  because having a pancreas that continuously monitors glucose levels in the body by itself  should be considered unnecessary!  

there's a gal online who pretended to have type 1 for a day.  she said she was 'overwhelmed' to say the least... 
everyone in those insurance companies should try being type 1 (let alone all of the other disease-processes they refuse care for) for a day and then tell me if it's fun to "think like a pancreas" all day every day in order to survive!
