This is the second day of Diabetes Blog Week. Today’s Prompt is to write a letter. I chose to write it to People That Love People With Diabetes.
Dear People That Love People With Diabetes (PTLPWD),
You love us. And we love you. Let’s start by putting that out on the table. I don’t want you to interpret this letter as anything mean. I know that you have only the best intentions and you want all of us to be happy and healthy for a really long time. And that is wonderful.
So this letter really is more about advice. Let me tell you a thing or two about what people with diabetes feel when their blood sugars aren’t what they are supposed to be. And perhaps let me give you a few strategies on how to best interact with us during these highs and lows.
For starters, please realize that we want our glucose numbers to be perfect. We want what you want. So we should act as a team. You don’t need to feel like you’re in a battle against us. We want what you want. We want what you want. We want what you want.
