Sorry that I’ve been away for so long. It’s hard to remain upbeat all of time especially when things don’t go as planned no matter how hard you try. Well, my blood sugar has really been riding a glu-coaster these past couple of weeks and I felt a little down.I felt like a complete failure.
I love the DOC because I began reading other blogs about people who are going through the same difficulties. Karen @ bitter~sweet diabetes wrote that “not trying is not an option”. I think that statement helped me through this time unlike anything else. Then I started googling motivational quotes and came across things like – “You haven’t failed until you stopped trying.”
I have a vivid imagination at times and pictured a boxing match between diabetes and myself. Now diabetes is big and tough while I’m skinny and weak, so diabetes has the advantage. Diabetes keeps knocking me down and I would get up, I’ll get knocked down again and get right back up. Now someone in the crowd (I picture this to be that mean little voice in your head that never believes in you) shouts “Just stay down!” and I shout back “No I will never give up!” My little story ends with Diabetes getting tired from always knocking me down and one random blow knocks him out. Yeaaa…. I am the winner.
This is how I have dealt with my bad days. What do you do when you are feeling frustrated?
