I often hear that my love for diabetes is a little to much, I hear "You love the high and low blood sugars?" Truth be told I do, a low or high blood sugar makes me work and makes me a better person. Any love is not perfect, the people and things we love bring us to the highest of highs and often make us upset or angry. Diabetes is not perfect but then again who or what is? I don't understand why people with diabetes talk so negatively about the disease, I bet that I could find a post on twitter every hour bad mouthing diabetes in some way. I could do that with just the people I follow, day after day I read or hear about how diabetes did this or diabetes did that. Last time I checked the person with diabetes is the one that is control. Sometimes we have unexplained high or low blood sugars but 95% of the time our blood sugar is high or low because we did something wrong. That is what made me fall in love with diabetes, it made me take responsibility for what was going on in my life and taught me that the only person to blame when anything goes wrong is myself.
This evening after putting "Minnine" and "Sharky" to bed, with Leannes help, I saw the post that is pictured above. Somehow I'm a day late in seeing the post. is an amazing person and diabetic, I had the honor of interviewing Seb in January and watching the speech below is true Seb. He is speaking from the heart and is speaking nothing but the truth. I encourage everyone to watch the video below and to share it with the people you love that live with diabetes. Anything is possible with diabetes!!!
