Life After a Cure--Diabetes Blog Week Day 7

Life after a cure would be pretty amazing. Here some of the things (in no particular order)that immediately come to mind that I would no longer have to worry about. I used to take these things for granted before I was diabetic!

Having to carry a big purse. Sometimes I want to carry a small purse, but can't because then where would I put my insulin pens, glucose meter, juice box, granola bar, ice pack to keep insulin cool in the summer, etc.

Accidentally staining my shirt with blood. Sometimes after pricking my finger, I don't realize it's still bleeding and I'll get it on my clothes! Or I'll give myself a shot in my tummy and not realize I bled a little---on my shirt!I hate that...

Having to always see the doctor. I feel like I always have an appointment. It would be nice to not have to worry about my health all the time.

Diabetes is expensive! It's like having an extra bill every month. I feel like I'm paying to have a chronic disease. It would be great to not have to budget for it anymore.

All the health risks that I would no longer have to worry about is by far the thing that I would be most happy about. I hate that I'm considered "high risk" when it comes to everything. I would love to be considered
"normal risk" again.

And lastly, I would never have to worry about what I would do if I were ever on a plane that crashed onto an island. I would be the first to go because my insulin supply would run out in a matter of days. If there were a cure, it would be one less thing to worry about. I really have thought about this.
