Another discussion that flamed inspired me to start this one. D has been my constant companion since 1980. Often, I have been so angry at being dealt my hand in life that I could scream (and have). D has deprived me of many things in life: good health, a possible career as an Olympic runner, my marriage, ability to have children, friendship and/or love from well-meaning but fearful non-diabetics, jobs, freedom to eat a meal without checking BS, and the list goes on..and on…and on. I have questioned, "Why me?" probably more times than Ive stuck a needle in my body. Most days, I'm just happy to be here, but then a black storm of feelings can hit and make my thoughts dark as night. How does everyone rise above the anger and depression that seep in and overwhelm us with its soul-sucking negativity?
