View Diary: Sin, stigma and syringes: The struggle for harm reduction (109 comments)

  •  I use syringes just like those pictured (4+ / 0-)

    to inject insulin multiple times daily. The injections keep me alive. In order to afford my "lifestyle," I use my syringes over and over until they're so dull they cause bruising.

    It's a way of life for thousands in my situation.

    Even though I'm willing to pay cash for mine and use them frugally, I support programs that provide them for others who are dependent on them.

    Earth will survive. Humanity? Earth doesn't really care. Don't take it personally.
