Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see. What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet? Or from your family and friends? Why is it important to keep it to yourself? (This is not an attempt to get you out of your comfort zone. There is no need to elaborate or tell personal stories related to these aspects. Simply let us know what kinds of stories we will never hear you tell, and why you won't tell them.)Since this is also the International Nurses Day, I'd like to express my gratitude to all the diabetes nurses and certified diabetes educators (CDE's) who have helped and continue to help me achieve the best possible treatment, and at the same time encourage me to lead a life that's not all about treating my chronic condition. You have all been so amazing!
So, I wish nobody will ever hear me brag that I've achieved any good treatment results just by myself. The support from my loved ones, from my nurses and doctors, and from the technology I have access to are the key ingredients that I couldn't cope without.
