I have been diagnosed with Type I diabetes. I am the first in my family to have it. It's been a rough ride but on the plus side I now know why I have been so tired and practically non-sentient over the past month. And suddenly having insulin in me makes me feel once again as though I can take on the world.
The past few months of gradual emaciation has affected a lot more in my life than just GSOC. My odds of failure are tremendously high at this point, for GSOC and other areas of my life. But I'm not so far gone as to believe my actions cannot effect the outcome. There's still ~6 weeks to go, and I plan to do some damage with them.
