Its #worlddiabetesday November 14 .
It has been 19 years since i was diagnosed with #typeonediabetes . Shocking moment for a child that was eating healthy, playing sports and enjoying life. Than you just wake up and you have condition where you need to take 5-10x a day injections to be alive. I have #insulinpump that is connected to my body. I am not gonna make this post as usual where i tell you how diabetes can be horrible. You can loose eye, leg, kidney if u dont care - but i do care - like really take care of it.
I will tell you how much i am grateful that i got it and why.
1 Kept me of the alcohol and drugs - i know its 2019 and people are starting to think drugs are okay - but with me they were never okay. Everytime my friends were taking any of these - diabetes would save me and be in back of my mind - dont do it
2. I am super organized person - trust me keeping this beast under control is one big numbers game. But so is bussines. When you are young - you dont understand what is being a bussines person, and how to respect others people time - thnx to diabetes i learned i have to respect both or casualties are huge
3 I was always underdog and rejected during growing up - "he has diabetes" - what they didnt understand, was that since everything is organised - they cant beat me once we enter the ring. Athlets who are the best are the ones that are consistent, and that dont get of the track. For diabetic its not an option to ever stop doing it - u have to be 24/7 in the game. Which means winning.
4 I had to do a lot of soul searching, and become better version of me. Thnx to diabetes, i had to figure out who i am. What i want to do and why i am on this planet. Normal people dont need to do this if they dont want - for me it was a must as for every person that has disease.
Accepting who you really are is fricking hard.
