Never There

Never there…..kind of like the FDA not including diabetes in their series of patient meetings!!! Go sign the petition so we can have the FDA actually *be there* for us for a change!

I need your arms around me, I need to feel your touch
I need your understanding, I need your love so much
You tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
But when I need you baby, you’re never there

On the phone long, long distance
Always through such strong resistance
First you say you’re too busy (Too busy to meet with diabetics?  There’s 26 million Type 1 and Type 2’s in the US alone!)
I wonder if you even miss me

Never there
You’re never there
You’re never, ever, ever, ever there

A golden bird that flies away, a candles fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game
A golden bird that flies away, a candles fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game

You tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
But when I need you baby
Take the time to get to know me (FDA, get to know us!!!)
If you want me why can’t you just show me
We’re always on this roller coaster (Roller coaster of blood sugars, with test strip results we can’t completely trust….)
If you want me why can’t you get closer?

Never there
You’re never there
You’re never ever ever ever there
~Never There lyrics, by Cake (with some additional thoughts by yours truly.)
