A story from The Sweet Bloods of Eeyou Istchee: Stories of Diabetes and the James Bay Cree (;, Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay



When Jack is 18, he’s diagnosed with diabetes. No one tells him he can do anything about it, so he does nothing. He gets sicker and sicker until finally someone teaches him about diet, substance abuse, and diabetes. A story about bullshit and helping yourself.
