I am broken.

How can I focus when those in power do not care about my existence?

They delay relief because we are abominations. How do I get out of bed? I cannot donate blood. Yet I’m supposed to remember that IV drug users are at risk for tricuspid valve endocarditis. Their greed indiscriminately murders people around the world. But recall that IL-12 stimulates T helper cell 1 production. We would rather buy a gun than ensure the person next has a can of beans. However, FEV1/FVC increases with restrictive lung disease. I am broken.

Don’t forget, the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.
