Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day. Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day. Is there something positive you tell yourself? Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through? Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost? Maybe we’ve done that and we can help others do it too?
I’ve noticed that I separate my frustrations with diabetes from the rest of my goings on through the lens of my camera. Some days, I really need to just go for a walk.
San Francisco has been kind in its feedback to this grand idea.
And yes, this includes the cats too.
By focusing on something other than diabetes, even if only for a moment, I can try to leave that 363 mg/dL behind. I think focusing through my camera lens is a good way to distract myself, particularly when diabetes demands a distraction.
