That doesn't sound like much but something like that takes its toll day after day. Talking with others that have diabetes I'm shocked that so many say they have gotten diabetes burnout and have not tested or taken care of themselves the way they should for a day, a week, a month or in my case years. That is very hard to hear, I was in that state for far too long and to hear that others felt the same way is really tough. The diabetes community is very strong and we do have people to turn to when we get down but we still don't want the disease everyday. I can only speak for myself but taking a moment to look around and see the amazing people I have in my life gives me that kick in the butt to suck it up and keep fighting. That does help a lot but I still have those mental battles inside of my head. Lying awake in bed some nights, hoping that you wake up the next morning is tough but it comes with the disease.
The mental strain of diabetes will always be present. Personally I believe that sharing your diabetes fears or stresses are the best remedy. For someone that deals with so much internally it is odd to say that you should talk but talking about my fears is what has made me love my diabetes so much for the past six years. Diabetes will always be challenging, it won't always be easy but when we are able to come together and share our stories and our remedies to help each other that is what makes diabetes so unique and so great.
