Just Living

These two people have a great deal in common. They love sports…lordy do they love sports. They love learning and understand that education is a life long journey. They love movies. They love to laugh. They love hugs. They are fiercely loyal to the ones they love.

And as of this week they are both LIVING WITH diabetes.

I stress the words “living with” because diabetes, which he has been diagnosed with for more than 20 years and I have been diagnosed with for 4 days, is NOT a death sentence. It is also NOT a wake up call as some might think because neither one of us did anything wrong. It is an indication that your pancreas doesn’t work the same way a non-diabetic’s pancreas works and genetics are a HUGE part of it. Neither one of us will ever not be diabetic for the rest of our lives. It’s just a matter of how we control our blood sugar either through medication/diet or just diet.

I’ve spent a great deal of time this week learning and making changes. Though my learning curve is shorter than some because I have a built in resource in my father, there are still a million things to learn about my own body because just like almost everything else in life, every person’s body is different.

For detail purposes, I am Type-2 just like him, so I will be taking oral medication as opposed to insulin shots or an insulin pump more common with Type-1. I have this tiny, fancy new machine that tests my blood sugar. (I do love a good gadget.) I’m considering getting a MedicAlert bracelet cause hey why shouldn’t I get some jewelry out of this. And somewhere down the line I’ll probably get to go shopping for new clothes!!

My father was my first teacher, so it seems only appropriate that he is also my teacher through this new “adventure” probably finding ways to laugh all the way through it. Laughter is the best medicine after all.
