I have written about this subject so much. I have lectured about this subject over and over and I live it day to day. That subject is MOTIVATION.
I host a radio show where I tackle it daily and even with kids I talk about being motivated with what we have and how to deal with it daily. I have some kids calling me up or texting me. Some chat with me on the site. I have adults also contacting me and I love being there for everyone, but what happens when I need it like now.
Today I ran into the most upsetting, depressing, bizarre incident ever. I received an email where first I was declared a jerk and then it was said to me, I'm type 2, I'm not interested in most of the efforts to cure diabetes, as I am quite sure it is not curable." Now as a type 1, I was so upset and ready to do war, but ever loving Patti, my wife said leave it alone and write about your feelings and what was said. Get others take on it and make sure it isn't just the way many type 2's feel.
Well Patti, as much as I love her isn't diabetic. She knows how much this hurt me and how deep I felt it go in but to be a diabetic and hear tis just goes deeper then anything has ever gone. To be called a jerk, isn't as bad since I know for a fact I have been called worse in life, too many times to count. Plus I know the person I am and what I do for the people I care about.
At this point I am just deep in thinking about this but was asking for opinions from all of you out there. Like I said, I am usually the one giving the advice, this time I am looking for some and opinions on how you would handle it.
I look forward to your answers.
And by the way if I can ever help anyone with motivation as I usually do please ask. I would love to be helpful to someone.
