Well I have been living with diabetes 18 years since a pregnancy with twins and on bed rest. I look around and see my neighbor who is 30, a quadriplegic from a snowboarding accident and am grateful that I can use my arms and legs, walk and go to yoga. I think of veterans that were injured in the wars and lost their limbs. We have to be grateful that we can walk, see, hear, and have other good health. Diabetes is hard, but there are millions of people that have it worse than diabetics. I believe that our thoughts determine our path, and I try to think positive, thought not always, and sometimes feel sad, I try to enjoy the things I like such as yoga and walking and my family.
You are so young and have your whole life ahead of you! Enjoy your life, try to have the best control over your blood sugar. I read of people here that have dealt with diabetes for 70 years plus! They are an inspiration. Our thoughts determine our path, think positive and good things will happen!
