I’m not My Numbers. My numbers don’t outline ME.
I’m not a robotic. My life is full and various. My numbers will differ and that’s okay and anticipated.
I can have a awful glucose day, however that doesn’t imply my WHOLE DAY is awful.
I can stay with “adequate” and never purpose for the inconceivable “excellent”. This thought for me, particularly, could be very liberating.
What human being alive right this moment is Good? That’s proper…. NO ONE. Why ought to I attempt to be precisely like NO ONE?!?!?! I’d a lot fairly attempt to be ME.
What I can do every day is do my greatest in every state of affairs with what I’ve obtainable to me within the current second. I can settle for when issues don’t prove the way in which I deliberate. That’s an on a regular basis a part of life, actually.
I can discuss via what I’m considering, feeling, or pissed off by. I can pray. I can really feel all feelings as they arrive and acknowledge them (even when I don’t like a few of them). I can stay with uncomfortable emotions and discover them to course of them in a wholesome method. I can ask for assist after I discover indicators or signs that I’m confused, overwhelmed, feeling anxious, or indignant.
I don’t all the time LOVE having T1D.

I don’t love the tiredness that happens after a time of decrease or larger glucose ranges.
Upon reflection, I can say that residing with T1D for a lot of, a few years has given me strengths in a number of areas that I’ll not have developed with out residing with T1D.
