No more blood

Jag har sedan march i år använt mig av CGM och av Dexcom G6. Det var en hel del turer då jag gjorde ett försök till att använda pump med closed loops – som inte riktigt slutade som jag ville eller som jag hade förväntat mig.

Men i och med att jag skulle gå tillbaka till injektioner igen efter 5 månader med pump fick jag ut Dexcom’s nya CGM G6. Det var som en helt ny värld som öppnades. Inga kalibreringar, inget blod på mina vita skjortor, inga mer stick i fingret.

Inför denna fotografering skulle jag ta fram mina diabetes ”prylar” och insåg att jag inte visste vart min blodsockermätare låg… Hittade den efter ett febrilt letande och ko på att jag inte tagit ett stick i fingret på väldigt länge.

Hur sjukt? Jag minns att när jag fick diabetes för 18 år sedan – då fanns inte cgm och stick i fingret var en vardaglig rutin. Inte längre.

Herregud så glad jag är för det!

For me it is important to eat a balanced diet and for me it means that I eat a little of everything. There is no "no" food and there is nothing that I remove from my diet if it is something I actually like. I am not a lover of pasta, but when we had settled down at this restaurant the other day, the only thing that was available that was gluten free (yes, I have celiac as well) was pasta. I think it is important that I can feel that there is no danger around food or bloodsugar, even though it is carbs, and that pasta wasn’t in my mind during the day, but it was delicious!!!

We all make our choices. I encourage you to make choices that are good for YOU, and YOUR body. I sometimes eat low carb food, sometimes salad, sometimes I eat pizza. A balanced diet. I choose the food I crave and I have learned that my diabetes doesn’t have to be an obstacle. We will all make mistakes, and that's normal.

To eat out can be a challenge, but it doesn’t means it will stop you from trying it enjoying the company 🌸

After recovering from my eating disorder, it is important that I fuel my body with energy and nutrition. But also to make sure to eat delicious chocolate/bread or whatever it is I’m craving that day 💕

I am so happy and grateful that this is only a temporary moment. I know many people are worse off than I am, but sometimes it is difficult to find strength in what belongs to my everyday life. And these are feelings that I am aware of are normal.

Life goes up and down and it can be tough that emotions you never felt before shows up. I think it's part of experiencing life and learning new things about myself.

The most important thing I feel at the moment, is that I am surrounded by people who encourage and loves me! There are many fun things I have planned and I know I have a very fun summer to look forward to 💕

I have had a very good weekend 💕 The pain becomes less painful and it becomes easier to live a more “normal” life (what that means). But there is a lot to work on. During the weekend I have occasionally cried, laughed and felt incredibly weak. But the positive thing is I haven’t been alone.

The mental part is still something I need to work on. I take one thing at a time. Because I know I am stronger that I think I am, and it’s okey to not be okey ❤️
