A TALE OF SACRED PLANTS, ANCIENT WISDOM AND WHAT HEALING CAN MEAN

When I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes seven years ago, I was in such a good place in my life and felt so optimistic about everything that I hardly saw it as a problem. I remember thinking “Ok, so I have to keep checking my blood sugar, watch what I eat and inject insulin … no big deal, other than that, I'll keep living my life in the same way.” I felt that I just needed to focus on the positive and that way I could avoid any suffering that diabetes could produce.But there's a difference…See More

I was diagnosed 1 year ago while on the happiest, freest time in my life. I was accomplishing my life dream, being a successful music producer with my own company, great business partners, great friends, amazing relationships. Just on top of the wave.

I was having so much fun that Diabetes didn't bothered me at all, I just said to the docs "ok, so I need to inject myself, how do I do it ? Oh this is easy" Well, after a while (about a year) it hit me that Diabetes is not so easy. Even though I have really good control, ACs about 6.2, some days are just plain bad and I definitively don't feel good at all.

But I have to say that Diabetes showed me a beautiful side of life. The side that makes us aware of how incredible fragile human bodies and minds are, how there are others that go through tremendous suffering (think of all diabetics that never felt the relief of an insulin shot, now I give thanks every time I inject myself).

This experience has led me to a tremendous respect and appreciation for all life. For a sun set, for a cool breeze, for music, for seeing the smile on a stranger's face, for my friends, for my parents, for being able to cry. I have to say that Diabetes has made my life much much much much more deep and I wouldn't want to go through it being blind to that, with my heart closed up.

In short, Diabetes woke me up. And I hope it can do the same for all my fellow Ds.

Love,

Santiago

Have you REALLY, REALLY done it ?

Posted on April 13, 2010 at 8:20pm 3 Comments

Last night I watched one of Bill's 1happydiabetic videos (this blog is in part dedicated to you Bill, you are an inspiration) entitled "One of the most important diabetes questions" and the question was "Have you really accepted your diabetes ?".



That brought me to an amazing realization, I was diagnosed 16 months ago and even though I KNOW I have diabetes I really haven't ACCEPTED it. My control is not bad Hba1c was 6 last time, but with about 1 hypo every other day. (I'm just too… Continue

Hi Santiago! I now see your blog post listed under "Recent blog posts". The links are automatically updated, but I think that it takes a few minutes because it uses RSS feeds.

Let me know if you also see it now.
