To be totally honest about my pump versus my pancreas… yes I do see that it has benefits. I ate like a unhealthy overweight fool when I was a human in my 20s. I was an overweight fool, so the only makes sense in hindsight. I had to make a total lifestyle change when I was diagnosis in 2005 as type 2 diabetic. I would be over 300lbs and bound for early a grave if I ate and acted like I did before ‘05.

I embraced and love all “the moving parts” of my illnesses now. I use them to distract from the pending DEEP depression that I am always on a knife-edged cliff of falling into. I value my mind way more than meat bag it is attached to. Though, I overthink everything as it is, and not having to sleep and recharge my body would leave too much time to do that 24/7.

My body just had issues of MS, diabetes and the aspirate side effects of bathroom and life issues. I guess further artificial organs and body part are what I need more than the singularity. That is just I fun way I always think of my Granny’s old saying, “It will all come out in the wash.” Cause, in the end, everything usually comes out the only way it can or should.
