Has anyone ever felt like that they have slightly become obsessed with their diabetes??
In my opinon Type one diabetes if almost like a child which needs care and alot of attention!! it can get angry and agressive when you ignore it and when you feel good it; in turn feels good and sometimes easier to manage.
But lately i cant help but think that diabetes is taking over way too much of my thoughts. Im thinking of the way im not complying with it, the way its going to effect my everyday activity, my future, my relationships, work, college, friends food ,family, doctor appointments, driving, sleeping, mood. my needle, my never ending fight for a pump, what i can and cant accomplish etc!! i mean its not always bad or negative thoghts i just find myself thinking about it ALL THE TIME! I sometimes dwell on the past and how it has made me sick and tired. I Im 22 now and i have had since i was 16 so its not like im new to the condition.
Why is this? i mean its only one aspect of my life and its not like im sitting around with nothing to do all day i think about it everywhere; with friends, in work at home in the car!
Does anyone think this could be some obsessive psychoanalylitical problem or is it just something which you never really stop thinkng about? The thoughts are not negative or depressive but they are just always there!! Its like every hour my mind cant go without thinking diabetes!!
I just think its a bit abnormal after 6 years of having the condition!!
Please shine a little bit of personal perspective!! im open to anything!!
Thanks a mill!
