|Danielle & I|
Danielle took the opportunity to observe me, 'you look pale...' I remember her saying. We chatted a bit about how we were feeling. She went to lay down in the living room and Vince sat down beside my on the floor as I finished my snack. I truly felt mad at diabetes. I remember saying to him, 'You know what makes me mad about diabetes. It makes me so angry that three people are awake now because of diabetes.' I felt so much hate towards diabetes, but so much love for the support of both Vince and Danielle. I was conflicted.
As I finally made my way back to bed, feeling incredibly full from the apple, peanut butter, chocolate covered raisins and glass of milk, I told Vince how appreciative I was for taking care of me. It's a big job dating a type one diabetic, and I believe that it takes special people to tag along for the ride.
