I have a thought that I try to communicate but my words can't or don't do it justice, my emotional state is in turmoil as I don't know how to voice my fears or my joys as they are short lived.

I battle with the highs as well as the lows of diabetes and life.

Carry on with a smile,laugh the loudest even though my fears can't be voiced hiding the hurricane deep down so no one can see my weakness.

Am I strong? Someone has it worse out there but why can't I express my fears?

Trying to keep my numbers in balance and now they say I have early signs of damage to my eyes,nothing to worry about as long as I keep my numbers from swinging.

The hurricane has built up to a cyclone how do I express anything?

Just do what you have to do, and express it the way it is without doubt or shame.

Just say what you need to say. Don't worry so much about the words. The words will come. Just keep expressing yourself. With enough experience, expressing yourself will become easier. An alternative to words is photos, or drawings, or other artwork.
