Today is a bad day, today I cannot believe that I was just unlucky enough to be this way. I have lived with this for 14 years now. Somehow, no matter how many times people tell you, “no it’s not fair, but it’s just the way it is and you just have to deal with it”, it never really sounds right….
There are other people like you, I just don’t ever see them around. I think every other person I’ve ever met with diabetes has recorded their blood sugar levels at least twice a day in their little notebook with the carb counting and insulin dose every day since forever. They are happy to wear a mobile phone size device on their hip and they never do anything that might make their usual routine a bit harder.
I feel like I am a normal person of this day and age living in a body with diabetes and everyone who is supposed to understand my situation really doesn’t. Its hard to get on with life, when this is my life and it will be my life forever. My life is probably going to be even shorter and more complicated too, and that terrifies me. You really never can take a holiday.
