Dear Diabetes

I got the question from Hedia to write a letter to my Diabetes. Here is my letter

Dear diabetes, I have never thought of you as an obstacle in my life but more as an asset. But I had wished this were my divorce paper that I submitted to you.

It is not an easy illness to deal with. But in general, I feel grateful to be able to handle what the diagnosis has meant. I have both seen the darkness but also the front of you which generates in that I have got to see what I actually go for.

You have given me the strength to handle myself and I have had to work a lot on those sides of me that normally are seen as weaknesses, but today there are strengths. You have given me friends all over the world, opportunities to advocate on how important it is as a diabetic to look at their opportunities, and perhaps most importantly, I have accepted to listen to my needs and signals that my body is giving me.

I cannot divorce you, I cannot fire you, so, I will make you as my partner in life. I choose to have a positive attitude about diabetes and life, and I believe our choices are learned habits.

There are many guidelines on when it’s best to inject your insulin before food and so on. Now we know that there are many factors that can affect when you should take insulin (if you are like me on MDI). For me, I always start with the guidelines I’ve been given from my endo and then adjust and make changes for what suits me the best in different situations ☺️ •

Well, now to the point! I notice that I have a tendency to put my insulin pen on the table 😂 just because I know that I can be “charmed” by the company and the food. Just to not forget to take it, lol 😇 am I rude? Am I alone doing this 💕

Did you know that the actual diabetes care product may only be 10% of the total weight and volume that was delivered? •

I am proud to be a part of the @type1eu ’s amazing campaign! “Reduce Diabetes Technology waste” 💙 •

An insulin dependent diabetic may use one out of syringes, insulin pens or insulin pumps to administer insulin. They would also use glucometers, CGMs or FGMs to monitor BG. Diabetic waste generated may be different for different people depending on what tools they use. However, the waste is a problem! •

Do join the campaign and collect diabetes technology waste and follow @Type1EU on social media #ReduceDiabetesTechnologyWaste #type1eu
