Diabetes has made me more aware of the fact that I don’t control the outputs: I can only focus on the inputs (food, insulin, activity, etc.) and keep a close eye on my values, to make sure no other “unknown” parameters (infections, stress) are getting in the way.
Diabetes has also taught me the value of life and taking it one day at a time. Whenever you try to have a “master plan” that will help you deal with things “for good” (whatever that means), you get a bump that reminds you that you have to be patient with yourself and that you are not perfect.
What about you? How has diabetes impacted your life? Hopefully with the contributions to this topic (written or on video, if you prefer), we can participate in this initiative as a community.
