If diabetes was an animal, what animal would it be?
I was recently talking with a group of diabetics and one individual in the group described diabetes as a big ugly bear that she has to keep locked up in a cage in her basement, and that she has to feed carefully so that it doesn’t break out and cause damage. This comment got everybody going on comparing diabetes to an animal. Everybody in the group came up with a different one, some compared diabetes to two animals, one when their diabetes is out of control and one when it’s in control. Some of the animals were pretty tame in comparison to a bear.
So… I am curious as to what animal you would compare diabetes to? What aspects of the animal remind you of diabetes? If the animal lives with you, where do you keep it? What kind of relationship do you have with the animal?
