If you have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blogpost that you have ever written? Is it diabetes related or just life related? If you are a new blogger and don't have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog?
A person who is newly diagnosed with diabetes is like a baby sea turtle. We pop out of the sand with no one there to protect or guide us. We’re expected to make it to the sea on our own without being eaten by a passing bird. (Well, we don’t have to worry about being eaten by a bird but you get my drift.) We have no idea what is going on and we’re scared. We’re at the mercy of our doctor when it comes to answering the big question, “what do I do now?””
The bottom line is that we are each responsible for educating ourselves. No one else can do it for you.”
Everyone is unique. Everyone lives their lives the way that works best for them. What makes anyone think that, just because we have diabetes, we should all be doing the same thing to control the beast? We’re individuals whether we have diabetes or not.”
So yeah, I highlighted more than one sentence and more than one post, but…I do what I want. I'm a rebel. I was pleased to see that, even though what I eat and how I deal with my diabetes has changed over the years, I’ve stayed a pretty true course of encouraging people to educate themselves and take charge of their diabetes. That is my favorite.
