Roger wilde started this petition to President Joseph R. Biden

I would like to make the cost of insulin for all diabetics $35 regardless of age, sex, race, and lack of insurance.

Insulin is not a luxury, charging patients 500 or more for one vial of insulin is not only criminal, but also unfair and greedy, its also not a cure. Its simply delaying the inevitable. With out insulin, I could be dead in 2 weeks or 2 months. 

Insulin should be available for those who need it to live. For example me.

I need insulin to just stay alive. Theres times where I have to ration my insulin, this results in my body becomeing sore, not very helpful when trying to keep a job. Its difficult, and it may not look like it, but theres days where I cant get out of bed, wither its from the depression or because my body cant move, both sprouting from my diabetes.

I would love to work, I understand I gotta do my part in society, but if im on my way out, why waste my life working. 

I have dreams and aspirations, I wish to become a psychiatrist to help those who need psychological help. But with the price of insulin I fear I cant afford college.

Diabetes is a ball and chain, I haven't felt free in years. And with 422 million diabetics in the world, I cant be the only one who has these thoughts.

In fact my sister is one, an ex girlfriend of mine is one, and her brother, another exes father is one, and a couple of co workers of mine are, and some old friends I haven't seen in years, a friends grandpa had it, and these people are still close nearby to where I live.

I feel that the reason insulin is so expensive is to feed the pockets of greedy men, i do not want to believe that our country is okay with charging the sick and damned this much for something that costs 10 bucks to make. This is not a fact, but a fear.

I'm not asking to make insulin free, but we can't progress on our own with how much it is. So we have to reserve it, which makes our body basically die, and then we can't work, and then we can't afford the insulin. Do you see this vicious cycle?

Insulin should just be $35. No taxes. No fees. 

I just want to live.

Thank you for reading. If im still around I hope to enjoy the day insulin is something I don't have to worry about.
