I ran a post last week
asking if you could name 1 positive thing diabetes has given you. More than 50 people wrote in, many said new friends, this great site tudiabetes, they lost weight and got more healthy. Now, I'd like to turn this question on its head and ask, "What's the worst thing about having diabetes?" When I ask myself I realize my first feeling is just an overwhelming sense of "Oy...and a kind of heaviness and brain fog." Then I have to take a minute and think through all I do to manage my diabetes, including doctor visits and what to do at parties, if you're dating is it an issue for you? For me, the worse thing about having diabetes it's the constancy. The constant having to do something: count how many carbs are in that bagel. Figure out when to time my walk? Remember to get those lab tests done...I say sometimes diabetes is a second job because that's what it feels like. I'm curious what is the worst thing about having diabetes for you?
