All that we want is the option to choose
What kind of dManagement tools that we use.
The technology works and it's there, on our side.
So why would requests be rejected, denied?
It's not like we're asking to have legs removed.
Instead, we are hoping our health is improved!
It costs them some money, this investment in health
But of course it becomes more a question of wealth.
These machines could save lives - does that count more than cash?
Or would companies rather see us burn and crash?
I just want the option to sleep through the night
Without lows creeping up and holding me tight.
Or the chance to see graphs that show my sugar trends
So I know how to best tweak the insulin end.
I want to be healthy. I want to be sure
That my numbers are stable, my safety secure.
I'm a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a wife.
The investment is small when compared to my life.
I enjoy some "good fun" and I'm healthy today
And a CGM tool can help keep me this way.
When it comes to our lives, there is a clear choice.
We deserve all the options. We must raise our voice.
