This is something I wrote shortly after joining this community, it sums up how I feel about our condition. Since then, I’ve been asked to post it here, I hope you like it;
Diabetes is a complex condition,
For at the end of the day, no one can better understand the challenges we face and deal with, better than those of us who share this condition, having a faulty pancreas.
I believe the experiences we have and share make us stronger, provide us with a ‘knowing’ about life that few others have.
Our bodies aren’t broken, they’re different, that’s all.
Physical life is about managing various physical challenges and that applies to all human beings.
Ultimately no matter how much your family and friends love and support you,
they can never really know what it is to deal with the conditions that occur with diabetes,
if they themselves don’t have to deal with it on a personal, physical level.
But it is always good to have non-diabetics, who love you and support you and want to help you
