Just a quick update to vent some frustration: diabetes isn’t the end of the fucking world. It’s mainly inconvenient to manage, but it’s not bad enough to warrant depressing sob stories about how life is unfair and you’re going to die if you can’t eat cake anymore while moaning about the junk food you can’t have any longer.
Stop having text funerals for your cake. Try to look at the positive side: you’re getting fucking healthy again by making better choices. You’re not having your feet amputated by making better choices. You’re less likely to die of heart disease by making better choices. You can kick diabetes’ ass by making better choices. CELEBRATE THAT SHIT!
I think it’s a good thing I didn’t end up joining diabetes forums. My life’s depressing enough without this negative nancy attitude I run into every time I look up diabetic related stuff.
