Let’s make Tuesday, October 8th, Diabetes Leave Me Alone Day. I chose that day because it’s tomorrow. Why put off something that can happen right away?
Here is how it would work. Whoever is the caretaker of the person (or people) who are dealing with diabetes in your home, you must go give them the day off. (Why do I have visions of the vast population of women in this country–with few exceptions–leaving this article where it can be seen?).
Do it yourself, hire someone, but tomorrow the person who takes care of the diabetes in your household——is given the day off.
I want you to actually try to imagine that day……………didn’t work did it?
Even if you were actually given the opportunity, you know you would be called nine million times during the day to be asked a list of questions that it would just be easier if you handled it yourself……right?
Now hold on to that thought for one second. You got it?
Now imagine every person with diabetes wanting the same thing even for ten minutes. You see people with diabetes do not get a break like we think we deserve. No matter what we may want or might imagine; people with diabetes can only dream.
So no matter what we go through, no matter what we feel, no matter what it is that has us completely frustrated for the day………it pales in comparison to the person who has it.
Always. In all ways. Period.
Whatever it is that I do on a daily basis…..I will do because I’ll get a break when they do; not one second before. Because if I can grab ten minutes here or there, or even if it is only one minute………my children with diabetes do not have that luxury.
Sucks, don’t it?
