Hi everyone, I’m Daena. used to come on this site very often when I was first diagnosed with diabetes and was very enthusiastic about taking care of myself. I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2007 and I’ve had it for nearly three years now. You can read about my story at http://sugarfreemusings.wordpress.com/her-story/
Don’t for a minute think you are alone. You may think you have fallen off then end of the earth and destroyed your life, but that is just wrong. Your feelings are common. Many people have felt the same way and acted in the same way. You may think you have drifted and hurt yourself, but you have not.
You know you can’t you just drop out and just be a “normal” person, ignore the tests, not visit the doctor. You can’t you just be “normal,” but you will be “ok.” You can find your place in this world, and it will be defined by you as a person, not by your diabetes.
That being said, you know why you will never be like those non-diabetics. You are special. You “must” take care of yourself. What you have to realize is that you can do anything in this world, you can be as happy and fulfilled in your life as anyone else. But in order to do so, you just need to “take care of some things.”
Welcome back Daena!
We have ample supply of friendship and support =)
Welcome Back and I am glad you are here!
thank you all for your warmth & encouragement i saw my endo 2 weeks ago after refusing to step into the hospital for close a year and had a big, teary meltdown. she and the diabetes nurse have been very encouraging and she assured me i am going to be okay. i’ve slipped up several times since that appointment but i am learning to pick myself up and carry on.
I was wondering what had happened to you! Omg Im so happy to see you back here!
Welcome!!! Done the same thing for quite awhile! Here’s to you! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
