How much time daily do you dedicate to yourself concerning diabetes ?

Is an hour or two a day, checking your body, examining your feet, searching your mind, doing research, exercising or even developing a routine, a plan of some sort to live harmoniously with diabetes, worth adding possibly years to your life and priceless knowledge to your mind ?

Starting today, how much time are you willing to dedicate to yourself ?

I wish I could answer that, but I don't know. I check my sugars and take my meds and vitamins and I even shower, so that's good! But I came a long way from say, less than 4 months ago, when I didn't care - well, I did shower at least. So I give myself props :)

You have been a true blessing to this site and a comfort to many, it's hard to believe that this is your first month here !
Help others to grow and go from non caring to caring and to accept diabetic life just as you have, life is truly a blessing if people can only learn how to enjoy it !

Thanks Mays. And yes life is a blessing and you can realize that once you are able to open up your eyes, especially to the little things. It takes time, just like everything else, on step at a time at this "self-worth" thing, it's all still new to me. Since I have been here on DC it has helped.

Kara, I understand that. Well, I don't have kids, but I have other peoples kids lol if you get what I mean. It's even better when you get to take your time in the shower and savor the moment.
Hope you get to take a nice long, hot shower this weekend :)
