Murder in the First Degree

I remember it like yesterday.
With great trepidation, I opened the FedEx box with the large "refrigerate immediately" sticker. Me? I'm going to have to inject myself? I was terrified. Absolutely shaking.
I read the directions - Open. Twist. Line up the numbers. Pull. Watch a little liquid emerge. Line up the numbers. Pull. Squeeze the stomach. Plunge it in. Wait a few seconds. Pull out.
I felt nauseated. I never dreamed I'd be stabbing myself daily.
Now, it's become old habit.
I stab myself, and more of me dies each time.
