Your life as a diabetic

(Source: zsafu)

People usually remember that I’m diabetic only when I’m eating. And then they think that’s all it is— a food thing.
But I still have t1 diabetes when I leave the dinner table.
I’m diabetic when I wake up and when I’m sitting down doing homework. I’m diabetic when I’m playing tennis, when I’m picking my outfit for the day, when I’m babysitting and when I forget the words when I’m singing to myself…
I’m diabetic when I’m stressed and disappointed, excited or in love, angry and ashamed or lonely or hurt. It doesn’t go away when I put the cap back on the syringe. It does not retreat once I fall to sleep.

My blood sugar dropped like the way you fall asleep, slowly, and then so fast that I ran into the wall while I was getting a juice box

I just heard Type 1 Diabetes described as “a civil war in your body”. That’s the most kickass thing I’ve ever heard.

more like a sudden vicious ambush on undefended civilians by guerrilla combatants that leave no survivors…>.>

But yeah, the sentiment is spot on.

What if you’re in the honeymoon period still?  It’s been two years and I know that I still am…

O.O I think it means you’re the luckiest diabetic I’ve ever met. The honeymoon can really last for years? Wow.

The last time I was at the doctors was over 4 months ago, so it could very well be over now, but still, that would mark 2 years.  My A1c has only reached 6.3 since I was diagnosed and my insulin has remained very little changed.  (For example, I take 7 units for a dinner that follows my meal plan.  I’ve heard of people taking 15 and even more…)

when your blood sugar’s too low and your friends ask if you’re okay
