I know that a diagnosis of ANY chronic disease can be both confusing and draining on the individual.
I also know that it's also up to the individual to manage THEIR diabetes!
Diabetes care, ans management is not something that can be placed on the shoulders of others (unless you are a caregiver caring for another) it is YOUR responsibility.
It's nice to have a support system, but why complain about the size or the limit of your support system?
You have to be supportive of yourself when it comes to managing your diabetes, waiting for others to care MORE for you and YOUR condition is, simply put, SELFISH!
Am i being too hard?
As diabetics, maybe we want, or expect much more from outside sources than we should expect, that desire, dedication and commitment should come from within.
It is so easy to pity yourself, blame your doctors for NOT treating you as you feel you should be treated (actually most people want their doctors to "cure" their diabetes), expect others to feel what they feel, life just does not work that way!
Everyone has SOMETHING that they have to deal with, something that must be taken care of, something that moves higher up on the list of priority in their life.
For those of us who have been "blessed" with diabetes place that blessing where it belongs, in YOUR pocket!
In life, YOU do not pass YOUR blessings and gifts received along to others.
It's much more important for YOU to understand YOUR diabetes and to manage it, by doing so YOU will reap the benefits…"You reap what you sow" …pity excluded!
