If it’s not diabetes making me feel bad, it’s always something else. Always. I walk 10 steps and I can’t breathe. Walking up the stairs takes so much energy. Can there be just one day that I feel fine? Just one.. That’s all I want.

What are you doing?! You have diabetes!

How to Still be Cool as a Diabetic:
-Flick your needles like James Dean.
-Pose when you stab yourself like Marilyn Monroe, bonus points for emitting sexual noises.
-Maintain direct eye contact with people as you inject yourself.
-Tell people that you’re injecting small doses of kryptonite.
-Tell people that you’re injecting yourself with The Antidote and sorry, they can’t have any.
-Wear cool jackets.
-Light your lancets on fire (or maybe not idk I haven’t done it, use caution).
-Jump over a flaming school bus on a motorcycle.

Me vs. Diabetes - FIGHT

ROUND 1

Me: That was definitely enough insulin

Diabetes: LOL NO have fun being irrationally angry and extremely dehydrated for the next two hours! <3

ROUND 2

Me: I feel pretty good now. My blood should be normal.

Meter: 113

Me: Oh wait that was the wrong meter, let me just grab the other one and...

Meter: 240

Me: Wait. No. I'll just wash my hands and—

Meter: 280

Me:

Diabetes: lol

ROUND 3

Me: Hey I didn't even feel that injection, I should be fi—

Diabetes: BLEED

I don’t understand why diabetes is one of the few diseases that isn’t romanticized. Cancer and mental illnesses are considered beautiful and the people with them strong and powerful, but diabetics are considered weak and are blamed for their disease. There is nothing beautiful about the blood and the needles, or the way my hands shake when I’m low, or the smell of insulin. and I hate it.

chronicallyinvisible:

I was thinking the other day that chronic illness sufferers are unbelievably good at coping because we really just have to be. We’ve been put into a situation where we have no choice but to simply carry on and manage. We may rarely be okay, but we cope, and there’s a lot to be said for that.
