The last few days, I have been lurking other bloggers that are participating in the 30 day writer’s challenge.  So I’ve decided to give it a try.  🙂

Today’s prompt was Health haiku. Write a haiku about your health focus. 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables. Write as many as you like.


I hate taking shots.

But it is my life support.

And I want to live.


What is that alarm?

Is it time to wake up yet?

No, I am just low.

My pump keeps me safe.

It gives me my insulin.

I will be ok.


How many of you counted the syllables on your fingers? 😉


About Shannon

I am a wife, a mommy, and a Type 1 diabetic (since '92.) I have had two successful pregnancies - one of which was with twins. I wear an insulin pump- - off and on for 17 years; currently on the Medtronic pump and CGM. I am not a medical professional, nor am I giving medical advice. I am just sharing my day to day stories of someone who lives with this disease every day. My ultimate goal is to raise awareness.

    Love those!! And yes, I counted (and recounted) the syllables on my fingers when I wrote mine. I also made my husband double check for me. Paranoid much??

      Thanks!! And Haha! At least it wasn’t just me then. I didnt have anyone else look at mine beforehand, but I did count them out, wrote them out (posted a pic on Twitter) and underlined the syllables! OCD much? lol
