A while ago I wrote the blog hate is a strong word. It was when I was down in the dumps. I now realize that there are so many things to be thankful for. It’s hard to find those things, so here I am. Attempting the close to impossible! If I’m going to have to live with diabetes, I am going to have a positive outlook!
I am thankful for…
~The insulin that keeps me alive
~My family who supports me 110%, and take initiative to learn my symptoms and such
~My friends who don’t treat me any differently, just because I have diabetes
~The people who ask me “can you eat that”, because I know inside they really care
~My endo, who is with me every step of the way
~My pharmacy which has helped with my scripts multiple times
~My faith that has brought me through some tough situations
~A family work enviroment, they know my condition and understand if I need to take a break
~Every day I breathe, I know it will get better
~A community like TuDiabetes, it has really been a lifesaver
~Those little things that have made it that much easier
~My Omnipod. It has changed my life completely
~My Sunday School Class…when I’m there I have a few minutes where I am “normal”
~My safe neighborhood, where I can get the exercise I need
~My CDE, who makes me feel special and treats me like her own
~God who has done so much for me and through me
~Organizations like JDRF, who have special events to rasie awareness
~People who are whole-heartedly focused on finding a cure
~Everything in regards to diabetes, I wouldn’t have it any other way =]
Anyone have any more to add?
Remeber, life is short. Live it up, don’t let diabetes stop you!
