Here’s the thing about Type 1 Diabetes…
I didn’t DO anything to get this.
I didn’t ask for this.
But yet, throughout my life I’ve had to educate the hell out of people to understand the difference between Type 1 and Type 2.
Sure I would love to lose some weight, but did you know insulin makes you gain weight? Especially stubborn tummy weight?
Did you know I have to wait for the perfect “blood sugar number” to work out? Too high? I go into DKA (bad shit). Too low? Oh, you know, pass out and die. Yes, dramatic? But it’s the truth.
But you better damn believe I’m going to play the hell out of the cards I’ve been dealt. I’m going to LIVE my life, SCREAM at the top of my lung for a cure and never, ever give up. It wouldn’t be fair to the cards if I didn’t. 😉
THIS IS 30 YEARS WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES.
