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!!!!
