Sometimes it can feel like a losing battle!
Someone asked me what’s it like living with diabetes today, and honestly, when I sat back and thought about it, I was just tired.
Too tired to explain. Too tired to care. Too tired of living it.
Blah. Sometimes your days are just blah. The numbers blend together, the feelings border each other and mean less, and you feel like it’s just been two seconds since you tested, but that was in fact hours ago.
I need to recharge.
Sierra Sandison couldn’t imagine how she would hide an insulin pump during beauty pageants. So she decided to show it off for the Miss Idaho pageant. She won. Type 1 diabetics say they won, too.
Um.. I think I know what I’m talking about.
News flash, it’s an autoimmune condition. Eating okra isn’t going to bring my beta cells back to life.
For dealing with all the shit we need to on a daily basis and still remaining (somewhat) sane!
Something I am proud of, something I cannot control. Something others are disgusted by, something I love. Something that makes me stronger, something that makes me fight. Something that too many misunderstand, something too many know too well. Scars and all, I’m so proud to be who I am, to have what I have. - I didn’t choose this life, but I am strong enough to live it. T1D.
It’s almost 3 am right now and I have 1.0 ketones and I feel pretty sick and I can’t go to bed. This is the first time I’ve had a higher than normal ketone reading and I feel so awful. I changed my site, took an injection, and am drinking a lot of water. I guess I just need to wait and see now..
