As I laid in bed looking at the ceiling, I had one thought that I could not shake. I did not want to bother with anything. Leave me alone. Don’t whisper. Don’t say my name. Don’t touch me. Don’t bring me soup. Just leave me alone.
First of all, those thoughts were with myself and not said, it was what made me post on FB what a baby we, men, can be. I knew better to keep them to myself. Seems a few agreed with me. 🙂
But my thought was, in the middle of all of this; what if I had T1 diabetes as well? I have always stated that we always have to be ready to learn something at any given moment. This was one of those moments.
My goodness. To feel so crappy and have to check a blood sugar, much less change a site, oy……..how unfair is that? To deal with all of ‘this’ and still have diabetes management on top of that, balancing numbers, eating (yeeeech), not eating……my oh my; what a whirlwind.
Yes, we discuss all the time what it is like to have diabetes and yet, I’m constantly given reminders that as much as we can say, or try, if we don’t have it, we will never understand it. We won’t even have a clue.
So to my friends who live with this disease, again, I am so sorry that you have to put up with so much, even when you don’t want to–that lesson was made crystal clear to me………AGAIN!!!!! Another reason to get back to work and try to rid it forever.
I am a diabetes dad.
