I had my first family therapy session with my dad and therapist today. It went rather well, and I am determined to get better on my own (well, with the help of my treatment team and supports) and stay out of the hospital.
I had a good reading of 112 at lunch. My therapist asked how I was feeling physically and I said really good. I forgot what it felt like to have a good reading. I do really feel a lot better when my blood sugars are in range and I feel better emotionally too. I guess this is a goal that I am going to shoot for.
I have a lot to work through, especially when it comes to my mom and diabetes, and having diabetes myself, but I'm really going to work at this. Diabetes is a tough road, but it is possible to manage it through hard work and determination. So, I'm making it my goal to take my insulin appropriately and go from there. And my goal is to get back on my pump sometime in 2011.
