For the last six months, I have strived to have my life be normal even with my diabetes. I don’t want to be singled out at dinners, restaurants, coffees by friends as the “one with diabetes”. I want to carry on my life as “normal” as possible even though it’s far from “normal” in many ways. Some of the things I do, are to remind my friends that they wear glasses, but I don’t point that out to the waitress…the first time I did, everyone snickered…and then saw how silly it was to tell everyone in town I had diabetes… I do make it to the pool and the clinic to ride bike on time, at the same time…so that they are expecting me…that’s what a normal person would do it they had an exercise class. I do carry some Nutrasweet with me, so that if the places I go don’t have it, I’m safe…but then, moms carry stuff in their purses all the time. The only thing that is different about what I carry with me, is my BS meter…but with all the iphones, i pods, etc, whose going to suspect anything different.
What do you do to try and keep your life “normal”…I’d sure like to hear.
