Type 1 Diabetes
#1
I have a condition, in which my pancreas (A vital organ that produces insulin) no longer works. Because of this, I need to create my own insulin- via shots. So basically, I am forced to stab myself in the arm/stomach in oder to keep living. Its a very hard thing to live with, as I have to deal with so many different problems- such as high/low blood sugar, ketones, and inconsiderate people who make fun of my condition - even though I can't control whether or not I have it. So yeah... There you go. A little piece of my life. :?

Well, as a first thing you have my sympathy for your disease. My grandmother has diabetes and she takes insulin injections every day. Of course she doesn't care anymore, she has way more serious problems than that.

I do not have any sort of academic level medicine knowledge, but as far as I know there is still a bright side to it - leaving the active and progressive research by side, maintaining a healthy diet, being active and with regular control over the blood sugar level, there are no massive downsides. I mean sure, taking insulin and having to have it with you everywhere you go is certainly not the best thing, but consider it as an additional measure. For example, everyone has to brush their teeth everyday, that is a measure that you need to take to maintain a good health. You go regularly to the dentist, to check your teeth's health. So even those who are "making a laugh out of it" aren't exactly that "independent" from medicine, as they may think that they are. I think that is a pretty good way of viewing it. Everyone has to take measures to maintain a good health and that's basically just one more additional measure.


At the end of the day, distance yourself from these people who make fun out of it. It's no good trying to argue with them, let them think and say whatever they feel like. A big way to overcome such things is to have a good environment of close friends and these things will always tend to be more "minimal" as time goes on. Or at least that's what I think. But I wish you lots of luck with the disease and do not let it take you down, you won't care about it in some years, there is a HUGE amount of people who live with it.

Thank you, that really made me think differently. Unfortunately, I now have a large amount of ketones and have to go to the hospital. Dont know for how long- but I have to go. So see all of you soon.
