I am not finding it easy.
And feeling attractive is crucial to any kind of dating, or relationship.
Whats hard is that it is so easy to blame everything on the D. To think that but for diabetes I could be.... whatever. Or she would be more..... whatever. They would find me more..... whatever.
My friends tell me I am just as ugly as I was before I was diagnosed, so I shouldn't get all self righteous and angry about it. The friends I have!
really diabetes is a curse
I think the trick to feeling attractive with D is to embrace all the marks that it gives you psychologically and physically. It's extra hard when you've just broken up with someone because you often think that there is no one that will love you with all this extra diabetes "baggage", if you will. Personally, I always take a step back from the dating world, just to make sure that my head is on my shoulders and my bg is in target before starting back at "the game". I also have "Diabetes" tattooed on my wrist with the MedicAlert symbol, which helps break the ice with someone new.
