Diabetes Blog Week 2013: Day 5
diabetes can suck sometimes. it is hard to manage, and flares up at all the wrong times. stress makes it worse, every change in routine, exercise patterns and diet comes with the need to make medical adjustments and changes. BUT diabetes also has forced me to become my own day to day care giver. and i like the power that comes with.
given the chance, i don’t think i would switch. diabetes is annoying, and has it’s pricks, but for me, it isn’t painful. i know that it must be for some people and i fully respect that. but it i am going to have to live with a chronic illness, diabetes isn’t the worse it can be.
so, i’ll stick with my sometimes sucky circumstances.
today’s post is from this prompt:
Just like in the movie, today we’re doing a swap. If you could switch chronic diseases, which one would you choose to deal with instead of diabetes? And while we’re considering other chronic conditions, do you think your participation in the DOC has affected how you treat friends and acquaintances with other medical conditions?
