I can so relate… some days I’d just like someone in my family to call and check in, ask how I’m doing or even be able to listen. It’s a deep sadness that comes up time to time. I cover it up and be upbeat but today I felt really low within, I live alone and manage OK but after a bad hypo this morning… feel quite defeated.
When I saw your post i didn’t feel so isolated, a little better so thank you.
I’m new to the site and a dunce online, plus dyslexic… It’s a grand life hey?
But I hope you know sharing has helped…
YES Type1, means having to be strong… I ask myself how can I cope sometimes? How to keep going? Do I need to have a flag sitting waiting in the kitchen, a RED Flag that when I’m feeling like I need TLC I can just damn well wave my flag, even if I live alone… open the back door and wave… over here… over here… Just to Acknowledge… my strength, my heartbreak, the need for TLC or kindness and gentleness…that I’m managing but it damn hard this 24/7. Keep it in my kitchen… and if anyone asks? Hummn thats for the RED flag days… when I need to acknowledge,when I need to take extra care. YES, I think I’ll go and buy myself or make a little RED flag…for on those days when I’m not feeling so brave. Have laugh… with myself and others… fair warning I’d say… LOL
Take care and thanks for inspiring…
