Making it a point to wake up with a smile, while knowing my day will begin with a finger stick and the anticipation of a target fasting glucose all before breakfast sometimes makes me want to stay beneath the covers.
Quickly my thoughts shift to the brave little children enduring an altered childhood. I say to myself how dare you to even try feeling sorry for yourself.
As I grow weary of the constant focus about food My memories of lollipops and Hershey Kisses fill my senses and how lucky I was not to have diabetes as a child. I say Kudos to the parents of diabetic children.
When I feel like a freak wearing a device that resembles my computer mouse and begins to beep at most in- opportune times. I shake my head and say to my self, smile for God gave you a precious gift called life and it is yours alone to cherrish and love for better or for worse so please begin the day with a smile.

I always wake with a smile and I carry though most of the day. I think it's positive thinking but my friends just brush it off as insanity. Either way I am happy to be alive, fairly healthy, and to have real and imaginary friends.

Every day I wake with a smile because I know there are many people who have a lot tougher life than I do. Heck, it is a blessing just to wake up because there are many that did not. I am grateful to have a disease that has many options to control it. I look forward to being able to help someone else, share a laugh and a smile with someone, or just enjoy the anticipation of what the new day will bring! While I think about these things I test my glucose level and inject my Byetta. Funny how they become no big deal with the right frame of mind. Keep your positive attitude, it makes life's little inconveniences so much more tolerable!

God Bless,

Thank you
Every day is a new day and it mite be your last so live it with out regret
I am glad I can stick my finger and test my blood sugars and have a pump to give me insulin its a lot better then not having them
I can live like normal people and if it beeps its telling me something I need to know .I do the bright side of life only I have lived the dark side and I can no longer live that way.To trian myself to look to the bright side of things and I still do this when I wake the first thing I think of is what can I do for somone els today to make them feel better or just a little bit brighter.
But thats just me
Best wishes

Your comments are right on the nose. Thank you for putting things in the right perspective. I was feeling bad about my own problems, and not looking at the big picture.
