- The secret to my beauty is insulin
So, word on the street is that Brittany Murphy had diabetes, which Slate subtly suggests could have caused her death. Well, as if diabetes weren’t a cruel enough gift from god to me at the end of the year (it’s a long story to be told here at The L in a long story in the coming week(s)), now he has to give me an untimely celebrity death that could be the result of diabetes!?! To shove my mortality and vulnerability in my face?!? Ahhhhhh!!!
Well, apparently Murphy had Type 2 Diabetes (I, like Sonya Sotomayor and the youngest Jonas Brother, have Type 1), and many commentors think it was probably more the drugs or eating disorders than the diabetes that did her in.
Not Newsweek, however, which ran a long, speculative piece about how diabetes could be far worse for the heart than drug abuse and anorexia.
Sob sob sob sob. Christmas in canceled.
