Diabetes has taught me...

I have been a full time pancreas for almost two years now. My reflections on some things I have learned along the way. 

Diabetes has given me a new appreciation for life. It
 has taught me to take it one day at a time, no more, no less.  

Diabetes has taught me that friendships are important. That your true friends will stick by you no matter what. 

Diabetes has taught me that you have to have a sense of humor if you don't want to go crazy!

Diabetes has taught me that I have to stay positive, for Lovebug and the whole family. When I am down, it effects everyone. When I am positive, it effects everyone. 

Diabetes has made me realize (once and for all) that I am not the one in control. It has taught me not to worry about the small stuff

Diabetes has shown me that I am stronger then I thought I was. That Lovebug is stronger then me. 

Diabetes has taught me to listen. Diabetes has taught me to believe

Diabetes has shown me that sleep is priceless. Diabetes has taught me not to be so hard on myself

Diabetes has shown me to treasure each and every moment I have with my girls. Diabetes has given me empathy

Diabetes has taught me to fight for what I want

Diabetes has shown me that God always puts me exactly where I am supposed to be

I like everything you said here! There's always a lesson in every experience. :) I l especially liked this one:

"When I am down, it effects everyone. When I am positive, it effects everyone."

So true!

Diabetes has taught me that there are other mothers to share this journey...and that I would be lost without them.

I have lived and learned a whole life-time since Joe's diagnosis. I am with Wendy...I have been taught that I would be lost without all of you.

I agree 110%...crazy how much diabetes can teach AND change everyone. I have learned SO much the past year and a half.
