We don’t always realize it, but each one of us had come a long way since diabetes first came into our life. It doesn't matter if it’s been 5 weeks, 5 years or 50 years, you've done something outstanding diabetes-wise. So today let’s share the greatest accomplishment you've made in terms of dealing with your (or your loved one’s) diabetes. No accomplishment is too big or too small - think about self-acceptance, something you've mastered (pump / exercise / diet / etc.), making a tough care decision (finding a new endo or support group / choosing to use or not use a technology / etc.).
I think one of my great accomplishments is this blog. It is out of my comfort zone for sure, and has been hard for me to open up and write about my diabetes. Now I don't even know if anyone actually reads what I write in this blog or if it is interesting to anyone but me... but that is OK. It has helped me personally in so many ways. This blog has helped me accept my life for what it is and embrace it. It's like therapy. My hope is that I may be able to meet other diabetics who have gone through some of the same experiences as me and find a community through blogging.
