Approaching Seven Years

It's hard to believe that this weekend will mark seven years of living with diabetes.  I want to say that I don't know where the time went, but to be honest, it feels like I have always had diabetes and I can imagine that when I am celebrating say, twenty years with diabetes that it will feel longer than forever.

When I think about the past seven years I think about all that I have accomplished in that time span. All the memories that I have made, all the people that have come and gone and those that have stuck around.  I also think about all the time I have put in thinking, crying, fighting, and struggling with my diabetes.

I think the fact that it feels like I have always had diabetes says a lot about the disease.  Diabetes takes all of you, it takes so much out of you sometimes that you can't focus on anything else. The endless carbohydrate counting, blood sugar checks, beeping, buzzing, site changes, low reservoirs, appointments, the list goes on.  Diabetes is relentless and that's why it feels longer than seven years.

But, what I have learned in the last seven years is that I am not alone in this.  There are so many others going through what I do on the daily, and I some days that is what pulls me through.   So, this Sunday, I will reflect on all that has been done to be where I am today in those last seven years, all the friendships I have made and all the opportunities that I have been blessed with.

  1. My name is lizzy dixon From USA, Dr.ojoka is the only Dr who could ever
    get my HIV-AIDS cured with his healing spell, i have tried almost
    everything but i couldn�t find any solution on my disease, despite all
    these happening to me, i always spend a lot to buy HIV drugs from
    hospital and taking some several medications but no relieve, until one
    day i was just browsing on the internet when i come across a great post
    of !Nicole! who truly said that she was been diagnose with HIV and was
    healed that very week through the help of these great powerful healing
    spell doctor, sometime i really wonder why people called him Dr.ojoka, i
    never knew it was all because of the great and perfect work that he has
    been doing that is causing all this. so i quickly contacted him, and he
    ask me some few questions and he said a thing i will never forget that

    hours after doing all he ask you,so i was amazed all the time i heard
    that from him, so i did all things only to see that at the very day
    which he said i will be healed, all the strength that has left me before
    rush back and i becomes very strong and healthy, this disease almost
    kills my life all because of me, so i will to hospital to give the final

    amazed and happy about the healing Dr.ojoka gave to me from the help of
    his ancient herbs But if you feel like contacting Dr.ojoka at once you
