I came into 2014 with the diabetes blues. It gets us all at some point. I’ve worked so very hard to get myself on a routine, to keep my glucose levels low, but nothing I was doing was working any more.
While others had warned me about Diabetes Burn Out, I hadn’t expected it to last so long. But it has.
I am, however, working my way out the funk.
One meal at a time.
One trip to the gym at a time.
One dosage of Metformin at a time.
Because I am determined to be the master of my fate.
I am determined to keep on fighting.
I see where those who don’t work themselves out of the funk end up and they are my inspiration.
Every person who has died too soon,
gone blind too soon,
lost a limb too soon
are my inspiration to get back in the game.
To not stay down when I’m living the Diabetes Blues.
