A Lifelong Power Struggle: You vs. Diabetes
Being diagnosed with diabetes is the beginning of a lifelong power struggle between both you, and diabetes.
Mutual respect should be given, but no misunderstanding should be taken, diabetes awakens you, and you in turn must tame it in order to control it.
In the process, getting to know your enemy allows you a little time to get to know yourself, after all the two of you are now “stuck with one another.”
It’s not a “Dr. Jekyll \ Mr(s). Hyde” relationship, it’s more of a “Love \ Hate” relationship that should lean more towards love, rather than hate.
There are some hidden benefits to having diabetes.
You will begin to pay more attention to yourself, and your health.
You will begin to eat healthier.
You will begin to visit your doctor much more often.
You will begin to manage your life, and time much more efficiently.
Yow will begin to help yourself and others to understand the importance of self worth.
You will now begin to do the things that you have always wanted to do.
You will become more aware of, and appreciate that which can now be lost easily.
(Use your imagination, no explanation needed)
Would you be giving yourself so much needed, quality attention if you were not a diabetic?
Maybe your diabetes is doing you a favor, are you ignoring the message, or have you recognized the cries for immediate attention, and action?
Show yourself some love, and while you are at it, take some time out to thank your diabetes.
