Dear Diabetes

Dear Diabetes, 

We have had you as an unwelcome guest is my house for almost 2 years now.  I am tired of you.  I want you to go away, but I know  you can't. You are here to stay.  I have to deal with you rather I like it or not.  

The problem is that you make my life much more complicated.  My life is already complicated.  I didn't need one more thing to make it even crazier.  Seriously?  Are you hearing me here?  Especially the past week.  The roller coaster you have put me and Lovebug on is just, well simply put; Hell.  She doesn't feel good, I am even more exhausted then I normally am (up until now I didn't think that was possible) and my moods are as up and down as Lovebug's blood sugar numbers.  

You are not helping matters at all.  I understand you are here to stay but could you just behave for more then a couple days at a time?  So this exhausted, overworked and stressed out mom could get a bit of a reprieve?  Would that be too much to ask?  Probably, huh?

That's what I thought, but no harm is asking, right?  

Even though there are days, sometimes weeks at a time when you make my family's life just downright miserable, I will not let you steal my joy.  I will not let you get me down.  There are too many other good things in my life for me to let you make my life gloomy.  

So there, take that Diabetes.

Well said, and way to end it on a positive note! Of course, it's all about how you react to a situation, not the situation itself....but when the situation is happening 24/7 and there's no real "break", I think it's ok to be sad, mad, grumpy, etc! Hope your little one feels better soon!

I think I may have to cc that to Charlotte's diabetes ; )
I'm so right there with you...esp after today's endo appt. But, like you, I was telling Charlotte on our way back to work & school that we're not gonna let it knock us down and we are gonna "kick diabetes in the behind" : )

I just found your blog and I'm so excited to be a new follower. My daughter is T1D and diagnosed on 9/2/09 so we'll have a lot in common. We use Medtronic pump and CGM! I'm interested in learning more about your Dexcom experiences. Are you on a pump? Nice kick butt note to diabetes!
