So sorry it has been a bit since I have had a post. I fell into a little rut, was not feeling great. I do feel today as tho I have turned a corner.
Thats the thing with diabetes. Sometimes, you just need a time out. Of course not from insulin injections, finger pricks, but just from the stress of it. I sometimes just retreat and take time for myself. Less social media, less plans, I just let myself take time for me. This is so crucial and I have had to learn to do it. Always remember take time for YOU. You can be there for others still, while maintaining your own sanity.
I have had a rough few months filled with doctor appointments, eye appointments and it made me tired and truthfully a little bummed. I learned thats OK. Its OK to feel a little bummed about this disease. This month is my 19th year of being a Type one Diabetic. Thats a long time to have a chronic illness.
I woke up a couple of days looking at it like this. I am just going to be grateful for the good days, and push through the bad ones. I am learning to be kinder to myself. When a high sugar pops up on Dexcom or meter, I will correct it best I can and move on. Try harder the next hour, minute, and days.
With diabetes, it really can be a thing where you constantly beat yourself up. We have to remember sometimes diabetes just has a mind of its own and we just have to ride it out sometimes.
Just take a deep breath and do your best everyday.
