It wasn't until my friend mentioned that I write a blog and I had to respond with it's about diabetes... which if you're not diabetic and not a medical professional (which at my age is assumed) it seems off that a random person would write about diabetes - so there it went. I went from the average healthy Joe to Kayla the Diabetic in a matter of seconds. As if I took off a mask and became someone else.
I realized though that sharing that side of you isn't a bad thing. I mean, I know that everyone I have encountered has been O.K about my diabetes, but diabetes can really be a conversation piece more than anything. I also feel like because I have taken diabetes and really transformed it into something 'interesting' per say - my diabetes story is a decent tale.
It's funny how diabetes is a disease that comes with constant reminders, yet sometimes if you're around no one that knows it seems less there...
