    This guy appears to be a nutty conspiracy theorist trying to drum up clicks to his youtube videos. Just more bullshit.

    You betcha! My computer at home, which I'm typing on right this moment, has FINALLY been fixed. I've decided from this point on I will NOT let anyone on this site anger or annoy me, because they CAN'T. I'm in a VERY good place right now. My body has finally seemed to have adjusted to diabetes, which I've had over 5 months now. I'm TRYING to eat better and refrain from drinking alcohol. I slipped up a bit yesterday, I had a few beers. It was exactly a year ago that my dad passed away, and I decided to honor his memory by tipping back a few. I believe he would've approved.

    Well, he was fine in 2012. Just had some obvious decline In 2016. Jo is probably not going to come off as a brain-addled pothead.

    Totally agree. It's why I voted for him in 2016.

    WOW...I never heard the five months thing till now...I got put on Metformin and a statin at the same time...I also had problems for months.

    Taking extra care to stay hydrated was important.

    Be doubly careful when on VIAGRA!

    been diabetic for about twenty years.......I've never experienced anything that might be confused with symptoms of Covid......I've got a CGM monitor and yes, beer is the worst.......the carbs make my blood sugar rocket......I've switched to an occasional hard cider which has a much lower impact........
