I haven't logged on in quite a while. Truth be told, I'm a busy lady who's way too busy taking care of everyone and everything around me to take the time to focus on myself. I think that's a problem most people have, but diabetics need to be a little selfish sometimes. Being a nurturing person by nature, I let myself get lost in the shuffle and I need to stop.
I think the problem is that I need someone to help hold me accountable to myself, someone who understands the struggles I deal with in this illness. Frankly, the only person who can really understand what it's like to be a diabetic is another diabetic. I'd like to be part of a support group or something, but the only on I am aware of is a hospital run group for type 2s. I'm not sure if that would be right for me, as I am type 1. Maybe I should make my own support group?
I know the online community is basically a global support group, but I need something more in my face, I think. I need a person. Someone who can always tell me that it's okay to make me the most important person in my life and encourage me to do the things I'm supposed to do. It's stupid, but right now I just can't remember to take care of myself properly most of the time, so...yeah, I need someone to help me.
