Please remind me that I do in fact have diabetes, and that just because I’m lazy is no reason to forget about it and eat whatever I want and go back to checking my blood sugar 2 times a day instead of 10 and disregard Dexcom all together.
Please remind me that people die from this disease and it’s not a joking matter.
Please remind me that I’m still human and bouts of burnout, apathy, and denial are normal and I should not be feeling guilty about this.
Please remind me that it’s harder to get back on the horse when it hurts when you fall off.
Please remind me to grow up and stop being a child about everything in my life, including my stupid disease.
Please remind me you’re all still there and you still care.
Please remind me that it’s just life and it is what it is.
