Hey, it’s okay!

March 17, 2008

… to have a blood sugar of 312 mg/dl and not have a frickin’ clue why.

… to contemplate ditching the pump each and every time you have to wear a dress.

… to think your insulin pump is cooler than their insulin pump.

… to have diabetes burnout the day after you’re diagnosed.

… to cringe every time someone says, “Oh well at least you don’t have…” Diabetes still sucks even if isn’t cancer.

… to read articles about diabetes research and not understand a single word.

… to be managing your diabetes just fine on injections, thank you.

… to have type 1 and support the American Diabetes Association (we may not understand, but we still love you).

… to clap your hands with glee when you have a good blood sugar.

… to eat dessert (as long as you cover it!) and enjoy it!

    It’s okay to berate people for telling you not to eat sugar.

    It’s okay to miss morning classes if you’ve been up at night with a low. Or a high.

    It’s okay to yell at insurance company representatives.

    It’s okay to call the nurses several times a day, especially right after diagnosis.
