Getting to Know Me:
This Past September, was my 24th year being a T1D.
I STILL go through a lot, bc this illness is ever changing even when I am on top of it. It loves to test me (pun intended)
From Scarred tummy tissues that sometimes doesn't allow Needles to even pierce my skin & I end up shoving these needles/patches (not ur average, wittle gauge needles either) so hard that I swear I know what being stabbed feels like. My finger tips hurt from all the blood being drawn at LEAST 7 times a day. Not to mention, the many times I've passed out, to be awoken to walkie talkies, EMTs & an iV in my arms. Seeing my loved ones crying & come back from an emotional rollercoaster, bc they thought I was a GONER, AGAIN. Can't even tell U how many times I have died.
Bad ass Cataracts in my eyes that don't allow me to drive at night anymore. Doctors are my Family, Ppl around me (even though concerned) feel like they all have a Remedy/Cure...etc
Anything can set my #s off:
EATING yes smart asses (* & NOoooo sugar does NOT give U Diabetes 🤦♀️)
Not Sleeping Enough
Meds/Machine not working
Other Meds: Cortisone, Antibiotics, Steroids
Etc etc etc...
So please tell me How U are better & stronger than me?
Tell how U CAN'T do what U need to do?
Tell me how I don't do shit because I'm a normal person, but my body sometimes literally sits my ass down & doesn't let me move...
