As a diabetic I'm very selfish. If I'm low it's always about me, I need food, I need juice. As a diabetic I'm very much so a Type A personality. When something isn't right with my blood sugar over a period of time I will make a change. I even changed doctors this winter because I wanted to be challenged more as a diabetic, I wanted a doctor that challenged me to be better and have an A1C around 6.5.
I often forget that everything is not like diabetes. Things in life don't change as quickly as diabetes does. When I have a low or high blood sugar the fix is very simple and takes an hour at most. Other diseases aren't an easy fix and for people living with diabetes it is tough for us to remember that. Making a change in life takes time and I often need to remember that. It isn't always about diabetes, sometimes those living with diabetes need to take a step back and remember that we need to the ones that have supported us for so long.
