Why is a chronic illness shitty?
Because it is chronic,
not lethal.You have to live through it, find a way to cope everyday, work out how to do as much as you can to make life meaningful….without tipping over your body into meltdown.
We get better days, but it is still chronic. It doesn’t leave, it just stays with us in a variety of strengths. You don’t know how your body is going to handle tomorrow.
There is nothing better than finally getting to take out a sore or itchy pump site :)
After not testing since breakfast because I forgot my meter at home, I’m rewarded with a perfect bg #diabetes #win
And the hardest thing for us to deal with is being misunderstood by people’s ignorance.
No we didn’t get diabetes by eating too much cake, yes I can eat sugar, yes I can eat and drink that, no I don’t get epileptic fits no matter how much sugar I eat, no it’s not easy to have to deal with!
Diabetes changes your whole life and having no one around you who understands is probably the hardest thing of all…
Found this card in the post office, made me chuckle
I should get that first one tattooed across my forehead
