I don’t have diabetes myself, but my husband does. Before I met him I didn’t really know anything about it. He is Type 1, so there is absolutely no cure or getting rid of it. EVER!
This is just the stuff in the daily life of a diabetics own personal hell. Besides the insulin pens, he has the cheapest brands possible because even with insurance coverage to have a better brand is still a rip off. Also on another note there is not a generic prescription for insulin either. It is funny or rather not funny since if he doesn’t take the insulin he would obviously die.
Sorry Hansel, but you don’t develop diabetes by eating too much candy!
The thing is people just don’t get it. Diabetes isn’t just something you can take medicine in the morning for and you are good for the day. No! Sugar is constantly up, down, up, down, up, down. I now get the feeling that a diabetic feels like a bouncy ball or a yo-yo.
A diabetic checks their blood sugar, and the score is good…
Just a little while later sugar is off…
What I have learned is a diabetic can have more emotions in one single day than one person can have in their entire existence.
Do you know anyone that has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes?
