Life isn’t always straight, even or fair. Sometimes you have to be willing to look sideways to see the perfect view.
Type 1 Diabetes manages to knock you sideways on an almost daily basis... Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, the picture changes, & you just have to keep an open mind. Because, as much as you want to, you can’t put it in a neat little box or relax. Take what’s going on with Cara at the moment for example... She’s gotten a bit of a winter bug. No biggy, right?!? But the number it does on her blood sugar levels is 😅 The thing is, to me, having an open mind means seeing some of the positives that come with managing this disease on a daily basis... So, I asked Cara what she thought they were, & this is what she said “I get to spend time with my family more often, & it’s made me realise that everyone is different, & no one is perfect, & there’s a lot of things to be grateful for... I think I notice that more”. There’s nothing more I can add to that really, is there?
