Life is an uphill battle, but when you have diabetes, it can feel like you are always at the bottom of the mountain.
Yesterday I told you guys I was regaining control of my diabetes through logging my foods to see what makes me spike, drop, and maintain my blood sugars. And my results were shocking! I haven't had such stable numbers in years! I felt like I really triumphed and made it to the top of the mountain. But then as I was getting ready for bed, I just thought... Oh no, I'm going to have to climb that same mountain tomorrow.
Thats the truth about diabetes, you sometimes feel like you are always climbing the same mountain. Fighting the same stubborn fights. Getting frusterated when the results aren't going your way. I catch myself saying "I literally did the same exact thing yesterday! Why aren't my numbers the same?" B,c if your numbers were the same, then people would call diabetes 'a walk in the park' (I don't think I will ever hear those words ever come out of any diabetic's mouth). In life every step you take is a part of your journey, it can lead you somewhere new, and take you on a marvelous adventure. In those of us who have type 1 diabetes, he's just hitching along for the ride. There will be days that you just size up the mountain, and think your going to throw in the towl but throwing in the towl can't be an option for us. We all get tired sometimes but thats why we have our friends, family, and our T1D community to lean on for support, when we feel like the climb is just too tough. But we must always persevere and push through the pain, and think about the view at the top. Every night before you go to bed, you should smile because of the mountain you climbed that day, and get lots of sleep for the next mountain to come. *
