For some reason it feels like everyone around me (especially my family) is pressuring me into becoming the perfect little diabetic, which we all know doesn't exist. Anytime I forget to stock up on supplies, or I forget something at the house, my family fusses me out for it. I hear things like "jeez Brandi, can't you ever remember?" or "gosh Brandi, you always forget!"
And when my blood sugar is out of control, I get moody just like a lot of us do. What happens then? I get into trouble with my parents. "quit back talking before you get grounded!" I cant help it!
I mean seriously, don't they even understand what I go through every day? Who am I kidding, of course they don't. Sometimes I wonder if they'll ever get it. No matter how much they try and make me perfect, it just wont work. I'll always forget some things. I'll always mess up. Them wanting me to never make any mistakes is like me asking them to jump the Grand Canyon. Impossible.
None of this is my fault! ...is it?
