Luck be a diabetic
When I first got diagnosed with #diabetes, I would hear the same response, "What bad luck" or, the slightly more optimistic, "That sucks." Although intentions were all good, the sympathy irked me. Call this beginner's luck, but I see my diabetes as a sweet blessing in disguise. 💁🏻Pro-tip: As a #T1D, you're like one in a million! (*ok that's probably not an exact statistic, but we basically won the diabetic lottery making up just 5% of diabetes cases worldwide). Life may have dealt you a wild card, & yes it's very hard at times, but you can still have the upper hand. I look at my diagnosis as a reminder to take ownership of my health. Without diabetes, I'd likely have that second scoop🍦or ignore the subtle signs of stress. Sure there are highs & lows 🎢 (see what I did there 😉), but I now listen intuitively to my body with absolutely no excuses. So luck be a #diabetic tonight, today & every. single. day.
