Diabetes is not who you are. You may have diabetes and you may be diabetic, but diabetes is not nor will it ever be who you are.
Being diabetic is rough sometimes, but you need to remember, you are not alone. Plenty of people go through what you do each day. If you don't think anybody will be here for you, you are wrong because you have a lot of people that will be, including me.
Never let diabetes take over your life or you. Diabetes is not who you are. Diabetes is a part of you, but not all of you. There is a part of you beyond diabetes, that I am sure if an amazing person. There is something special about everybody that is way beyond diabetes. Even if you don't believe you are special, you truly are. Everybody is and there is somebody in this world who loves you very much for who you are.
I know it may seem like the end of the world when you are first diagnosed, but this is not the end of the world. It is just the beginning. You can live a full happy life with diabetes, you just need to make sure that you are taking care of yourself. Do not be ashamed of what you have, because it is not what you are. There is a person underneath diabetes. Do not let diabetes control your life, because you are the one who controls it. You are in control, not this disease. Being positive and happy will make it all a lot different. Don't you dare tell me it is impossible to be happy with diabetes, I am living proof it is.
I have had diabetes for nine years and nine months. I am living a very happy life. I have accomplished so much, despite being diabetic I do not let diabetes slow me down. You can do the same. Diabetes is not the end of the world. Do not let in control your life. Obviously, it is an important part of your life and you should not stop taking care of it, but it is not all of it. We are survivors guys. We deal with so much everyday, but we are still whole, besides our pancreases. :p We are warriors and we can beat diabetes. Someday, there will be a cure. I obviously have no way of knowing when that will be, but until then just keep on fighting. I know you can do it! I am not saying it is going to be easy, but I know you can do it. Even through the highs and the lows. There are days where you will be frustrated, but remember tomorrow will be better. Keep your head held high and don't let anything tear you down or hold you back. You can do anything you set your mind to! Just do not give up and do not loose hope!
