Okay, you want some real talk? Let’s do real talk! 😊
Diabetes fuckin’ sucks. I won’t even sugar coat it (because sugar is the devil, duhhhh), but it sucks. The second you think you got ish figured out, NOPE, you don’t; back to the guessing games you go!
And I KNOW, before anyone starts coming after me with pitchforks and “it could be so much worse…” stories, I know it could be worse. But any way you slice it, Diabetes still sucks.
It sucks to wake up to low blood sugars and feel out of sorts.
It sucks to continually have to stab your own fingers to draw blood to test.
It sucks to do your best and make no progress.
I could go on. Diabetes just sucks.
I will continue fighting, as I have been, but Diabetes sucks, and having been in the trenches for 8+ years now, I’m allowed to feel that way, and I’m allowed to feel frustrated, and I’m allowed to dislike feeling helpless. I’m NOT helpless, but sometimes it definitely feels that way, and I do a lot of things well, but helpless ain’t one of em.
And I realize this post is far from cheerful and upbeat, but life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, and I am big on keeping it real.
Diabetes is TOUGH… but I’m tougher, watch
