Hey, it’s okay!
… 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!
