November is diabetes awareness month which is something I hold very dear to my heart. I was diagnosed over five years ago with a chronic illness that has completely changed my life. I can't honestly say that anything good has come from diabetes but I have no choice but to live life with it. A few months ago I decided to work as hard as I could to change my a1c in hopes that I would start feeling better. I haven't had a blood sugar higher than the mid 200's since I started! I still don't feel great, I think I might always be exhausted but I feel so much closer to living a normal life. I know most people are uninformed about my illness, but I want to remind you that it is very serious, that I'm not using it for attention but I absolutely need a little more attention and patience because the wrong number in my meter or pump could kill me, that lows and highs make me act very strange and sometimes pass out. I am more prone to autoimmune diseases and I have a long exhausting list of them that were a repercussion of my diagnosis. Please don't ever think that someone with type on who needs to sit down, a snack, to give themselves insulin, drink water, pee or check their blood sugar is over reacting!!!! Most of my life I have under reacted to my health needs and it has really hurt me. You can't possibly know the feeling of a 45 low blood sugar or sugar so high you're throwing up. Look after your diabetic friends, stop making jokes about something serious and honestly if you feel excessively thirsty for a long period of time, PLEASE go to the doctor, five years ago I almost lost my sight and function in my kidneys!!!!
That's my best friend
October is the year we met and it's been what? 12 years of y'all being the best friends I've ever had. I love you so much. Thanks for matching with me 🎃
I will run head first into a cage full of gross cotton to play with you any day.
I love you so much, pumpkin 🎃
