Diabetes Every Day

Yes, those of us who have diabetes (Type 1, Type 1.5, or Type 2) live with this disease every moment of our day.  But what does this really mean?

Imagine your life on a constant roller coaster.  Some coaster cars go up (like our blood sugar), some cars go down (like our blood sugar), and some cars are even and steady (you get the point).  Some days the roller coaster ride is a nice, steady ride with the wind blowing through your hair and, essentially, you’re coasting.  You want the ride to keep going.  While other days the ride is full of climbs and drops, some drastic, with severe sharp turns as you wonder when this ride will ever end.

Now throw in food, exercise, stress, and emotions and the roller coaster ride becomes much larger.

This is our lives with diabetes.  Our diabetes doesn’t stop during the day, give us a break during the night, then continue in the morning.  No, it constantly ebbs and flows like the ocean.  We manage it; it does not manage us.  We decide whether to live, or try to live, a healthy lifestyle.

Right now, I would like you to watch this video.  It serves two purposes.  One, to inspire and two, to remember there are children in the world who need our help.  If you are diabetic, watch it for the inspiration and allow it to, “move you”.  If you are not diabetic, I hope you become inspired to get healthy, get active, and encourage others to follow.
