Last night we got together with friends that we don’t see too often. We were celebrating a few birthdays, so I being the dessert maker, made up a nice treat. Only one person in the group is a diabetic (D) like myself, and I saw their eyes bulge out when they saw what I had made, and I could see their nonD wife giving me the evil eye, as if I was going to kill her hubby due to sugar overdose! He’s on insulin by the way, so he can “cheat” from time to time like I/we do from time to time.
As I was sitting around the table sharing appetizers and chatting up with the guys on all the latest news. I started to realise that I was wishing I was sitting with all my D friends that I’ve made contact with over the past year. I only started to socialise in D forums recently, and have found them to be a God send for when I’m feeling down or see someone asking for help. I was having an inner struggle inside of myself with feeling the way I was last night.
