Can't Stop Now
There are so many horror stories. Diabetes related complications occur all the time. People told me some of the stories, shortly after I was diagnosed. It's hard not to be scared of what can happen. I really thought about it today sitting in psychology. There are so many complications and they happen to real people.
It really occurred to me today that I need to be careful and cautious being a diabetic. That unlike many other people my body is not fully o.k. I have a disease that could cause blindness, loss of limbs and heart disease. I will not let this happen.
I want to be healthy and active; alive and well. There are so many things that I want to do and see. I am not going to use diabetes as a crutch and won't let this disease slow me down. There are just too many things that I see for my future, education, career, family and travel. I can't stop now.
