On the surface, it’s weird to think that something like diabetes can have a positive impact on someone’s life. That diabetes can be helpful. Diabetes is unrelenting. It demands constant attention and even when you have both eyes on it, it manages to run amok anyway. Control is a relative term when it comes to living with diabetes, and as a result it’s tough to associate positive emotions with this disease – but when you look deeper, the good is there.
Yes, diabetes sucks. And yes, plenty of good can be found despite (and because of) this disease. As is the case with managing diabetes, it’s all about balance.
Accept the bad, cherish the good and celebrate the great.
