My aunt told me that complained to much about diabetes, once she said that I didn't say a word, which meant alot of the times when i was around here i never let her know how i was really doing.It hurt my feelings that she said that, when i thought she was the one person i could talk to.
I don't blame people for whining, i don't blame people for bolusing for super high carb meals, or skipping insulin, or pretending for one day that what you do doesn't affect your health, i don't blame them for being scared of eating candy or going out to eat or talking to other people about diabetes. I don't blame people for not caring. the reason i don't blame them is because we all go through the denial, guilt, anger that is associated with this disease. The thing they don't tell you is you never truly over come all those emotions, because once you got the handle on one thing life will throw you another curve ball.
I would like to thank Tudiabetes, for being a place for diabetics to speak out , and a place where you never feel alone in the disease. Because if it wasn't for this place, i would probably be in my own deep dark hole, letting the loneliness get to me. This site has made me laugh, sigh, cry, appreciate, educated, and has let me become more aware of my diabetic surroundings (from new gadgets, techniques, and good friends with great advice).
So forgive me if i whine,gripe, grouse,
drone, fuss, gripe,
howl, kick, mewl,
contravene, criticize, defy, demur, denounce, deplore,
disagree, disapprove, dissent,
whimper,yammer about diabetes.
No one said you had to listen :D, but to those that do i promise to hear you out to.
We are not in this fight alone, i think tudiabetes is a safe haven for us all.
