Diabetes ALWAYS makes me have to think about EVERYTHING...
And Diabetes keeps me thinking on my feet – in order to protect them.
Diabetes ALWAYS makes this Litt Major grad do math- whether I want to or not.
Necessary numbers swirl around my world in a dizzying array every single day
And the calculations NEVER stop.
Diabetes can be scary – if you think too much – or too little about it.
Diabetes has made me laugh- like when my pump tubing gets caught on a doorknob
Diabetes has made me say OUCH out loud – like when my pump tubing gets caught on a doorknob.
Diabetes has made me cry.
Diabetes has been known to leave me exasperated, like when I test and bolus accordingly and Blood Sugar Nirvana eludes me for no real reason except because it can.
Diabetes unfortunately, is a family affair.
Diabetes has given me a wonderful extended family.
Diabetes makes me play both defense AND offense – instead of just playing.
Diabetes is both my "Achilles Heel” and my passion.
And Diabetes is ALWAYS on the tip of my tongue~
Whether it’s to inform, educate, ADVOCATE and make others laugh and learn - Or to treat a low.
Sometimes all of the above occurs at the same time – and I ALWAYS deal with it.
Diabetes ALWAYS IS
And ALWAYS will BE
Unless we CURE DIABETES.
