So I’ve been a type 1 diabetic for 5 coming up on 6 years this February and it still does not feel real.
I’ll be going about my day but then something will break my thought, usually as I’m doing my shot or just thinking about the disease, and it will hit me hard. I have diabetes. I will have this my whole life. I will have to poke and stick myself for so many years to come.
Everything seem hyper realistic at this point even when looking at my hands they will seem more real then ever. It’s just all comes crashing down on my at once.
The worst part is that even if it has already happened it can and will still happen again and also when I’m not expecting it.
I just want to know if anyone else feels this or what are your ways of coming to terms with having this disease.
